Current location of book drop-off sites:
PLEASE: NO HARD-COVERED BOOKS AT ALL. NO ROMANCES! Please be considerate and let us use our time sending books rather than discarding them.
THE NICE WEATHER IS BACK, FINALLY. We now are using 4 drop-off places.
FOR THOSE LIVING CLOSER TO THE CLIFTON PARK AREA, books may be dropped off at our storage garage. To do so please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get directions.
Print & Graphics Group, 12 Fire Road, Halfmoon (near USA gas station); call for hours 371-4649. It continues to be an outside drop point.
Bella Napoli, 672 New Loudon Rd, exit 5 of the Northway, at the intersection of 155 & route 9 in Latham heading towards rte 9. Outside bin near side entrance to the bakery.
688 rte. 9, about 200 ft. north of Bella Napoli on the left side in a mini mall between a pizza place and a Muslim market. There is an outside bin. If the office is open you are welcome to come in. Ring the doorbell in the middle of the door. Office hours are generally on Sunday, Monday and Thursday, from 2-4, but they depend on the availability of our volunteers. If no one is there, please use the bin. It is checked regularly. Again, please leave no donations for postage in the bin.
Halfmoon Town Hall- rte 236, 1 Town Hall Plaza. Go through the intersection of 146 & 9 to the very end, and take a right. Go up a hill. About a mile past the hill, on the left is 1 Town Hall Plaza. It is the first of two buildings. The drop box is inside on the right. Hours are weekdays from 9-4.
For those who live too far to use our collection sites, you may mail the books to be donated to:
Books for Troops, Inc., 152 Oak Brook Commons Clifton Park, NY 12065. If you are shipping only books, you can use MEDIA mail for books if you use your own box, rather than the PO boxes. It saves money. Recycled boxes are fine as long as you black out all previous mailing and UPC labels.
Please consider a donation for postage with your donation of books. However, do NOT include the donation inside the books. Instead send it to Books for Troops, 152 Oak Brook Commons, Clifton Park, NY, 12065. All donations are tax deductible and will receive a tax receipt. No donation is too small.
Our troops always request recent DVD's, puzzle books of all kinds, comics and books on CD. If you have any to donate, please include them. Also a nice thank you card is always a morale booster and a reminder of home and people who care.
