How Can I Get My Donations To You?

We accept books year around at McAlister Square in Greenville | 225 S. Pleasantburg Dr. We have an unloading area in the back of the building where we can bring a cart out to unload your vehicle and provide you with a receipt for tax purposes.  If you have a large quantity of books, we would like you to call ahead (864-467-3456) to make sure we have sufficient volunteers and staff to help. 

Directions to the Unloading Area:

Turn into McAlister Square using the entrance on S. Pleasantburg Dr nearest the Publix. Continue straight past the Greenville Technical College registration building, then turn left and proceed straight behind McAlister Square. You will see a black canopy with "SC Works" on it. Park at the curb and call our main number: 864-467-3456 to let us know you are there.
