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.

Over the past 12 months we have shipped 2.4 million books, 154 computers and 62 e-readers containing 467,000 million digital books, as well as 7 new law and human rights libraries to 25 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 heavily upon volunteers to sort and pack books. Volunteers made it possible for BFA to send over 2 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 60 people are welcome to volunteer. Volunteers range from individuals and families to professional and school-related service groups.

If you are looking for a fun, satisfying volunteer experience, join us at our warehouse! 

Volunteers give two or more hours of their time and meet at our warehouse on:

  • Monday through Friday from 9 AM–3 PM
  • First and third Saturdays of every month from 9 AM–2 PM
