Give books

Help Everybody Wins DC put more books in the hands of students. When you give books, you are helping EWDC's Book Project, which gives away FREE books to Power Lunch students to build their personal home libraries. You can buy books for students yourself or coordinate a Book Drive. To get started, email Sarah Aldridge at

Everybody Wins DC needs books for children ages 5 – 10, especially:

  • Early readers
  • Elementary chapter books
  • Bilingual books in Spanish and English
  • Diverse books
  • Graphic novels

Book Guidelines

  • We only accept new books
  • We are unable to accept books with religious or holiday themes
  • We appreciate delivery of books to our office at 1420 New York Ave., NW
  • Books are collected both for distribution for student ownership and for refreshing book carts, so both paperbacks and hardbacks are welcome
  • We do have an Amazon wishlist. And if donors choose to shop through Amazon, (for books or anything else!) through AmazonSmile, a portion of sales is donated to Everybody Wins DC!
  • Make shopping even easier by using the browser extension Smilematic, which will automatically redirect you to whenever you shop at Amazon!
