BFA Atlanta Region
The Atlanta warehouse processes, sorts and ships all of the high-quality books that BFA sends to children and adults in Africa. Demand for BFA shipments has grown so much that the warehouse has had to double its holding capacity in the three years since it opened.
Last year alone, BFA shipped over 2.4 million books to 21 African countries. For those books to reach African children, the Atlanta warehouse ships anywhere from 20,000 to 60,000 books in an average week.
Smooth warehouse operations are invaluable in BFA’s mission to end the book famine in Africa. With a small staff, the Atlanta warehouse depends on volunteers to sort and pack books. Volunteers made it possible for BFA to send over a million high-quality and useful books to the children of Africa each year!
We rely on volunteers like you to sort and pack the books for our shipments. No heavy lifting is involved. Volunteers should be age 12 years or older. Individuals or groups of up to 80 people are welcome to volunteer. Volunteers range from individuals and families to professional and school-related service groups.
