Kedem – Collectathon
The Footpath Library collects new (or near new) books and distributes those books to disadvantaged communities across Melbourne (there is a Sydney and Brisbane branch too). Mainly fiction books but non-fiction books that are accessible and readable are also appropriate.
Given that we, as Jews, are the People of the Book and we have a Kedem book club, our Mitzvah Day activity will involve individuals collecting a few books that are in a good condition from their own homes and/or from their family and friends. The books will then all be dropped off at Shaun Miller’s home on Mitzvah Day from 9am to 4pm that day – upon which the collection of books will be delivered to The Footpath Library’s headquarters in Flemington.
