Puerto Rico Book Drive

Looking for a way to help children in Puerto Rico?   Join our Catholic Charities NY Book Drive!

September reminds children in Puerto Rico not only of a new school year but of Hurricane Maria that, one year ago, ravaged their island home. 

Families are still recovering from the devastating effects of the hurricane and many children do not have books and other basic educational necessities.

So Catholic Charities is collecting new pre-K Spanish-English bilingual books to bring with us on our upcoming humanitarian trip to Puerto Rico.  We would love your help with this drive!

Spanish-English bilingual books can be purchased on Amazon, Scholastic or other vendors.

Please mail your new books to:

  • Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York
  • Att:  Christina Perez
  • 1011 First Avenue, 11th Floor
  • New York, NY  10011

We are collecting books until Friday, October 5.

Help Catholic Charities NY help those in need.


Thank you for your generosity!

Catholic Charities is responding to the needs of our neighbors during the 
COVID-19 pandemic.
