LWC Book-It: Donate a Book to LWC, Win a Pizza Dinner on Us

Do you remember the Book-It program from elementary school and how exciting it was to earn a personal pizza for reading books?

It’s time to relive the excitement:

Introducing Lifecycle WomanCare’s Book-It Book Drive!

The lending library has been a tradition at LWC for many years, and is currently in need of an update.

You can help by donating a book from our “LWC Book-It Book Drive ” wish list. One lucky donor will be selected at random to receive a $50 Door Dash gift card so you can enjoy a pizza dinner (or dinner from another favorite restaurant) on us.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Find our Wish List on Amazon: “LWC Book-It Book Drive“. Order a book (or two, or more) for our lending library before April 1. Books will be shipped directly to LWC.
  2. Alternately, browse the list below to see if you have a second-hand copy to donate (most recent editions only, please). Mail or drop off your book(s) to Lifecycle WomanCare, 918 County Line Road, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
  3.  Email to let us know which books you are donating.

That’s it!

The winner of the Door Dash gift card will be selected and notified the first week of April.
