ACC collecting children's books for Brown Santa Program

Austin Community College is collecting donations for its annual “I Can Read!” children’s book drive benefiting the Travis County Sheriff’s Office’s Brown Santa Program.

The drive benefits children of low-income families. New and gently used books are accepted.

Donations may be dropped off through November 23 at collection boxes located at ACC police offices on all campuses.

Monetary donations can be made online through November 14 with Bookspring here. Officials say every $10 pays for four books.

Since its inception, the ACC children’s book drive has collected more than 10,500 books for the Brown Santa Program.
