Third Annual UVA-VT USO Book Drive Competition

November 30, 2014

UVa alumni are taking on Virginia Tech alumni in charity again this year! From now until November 30th, the DCHoos are competing with the DC-area Virginia Tech Alumni Association to see which alumni club can collect more online donations for children’s books for the USO & United Through Reading program. USO has a partnership with United Through Reading to collect new children’s books for military families. The program also allows parents who are deployed to read to their children virtually when they can’t be there in person by creating DVD videos of the deployed parent reading the donated books.


This year, the UVaClub of Washington, DC will provide the online donation link for both schools. When completing the donation page, you will be prompted to indicate which school the donation should be applied to. Donations can be made online only.




For more information about the book drive and the USO’s partnership with United Through Reading, please go to: http://www.unitedthroughreading.org/





The book drive will conclude November 30th. Winner will be announced in our December 1st newsletter.
