At Wakefield Books, we are committed to supporting local causes that impact our neighbors and community. As booksellers, we work diligently on promoting literacy, reading and just getting books in the hands of those who need them. We also make donations year round to as many other great non-profit organizations as we can. This community has been very supportive of us and we want to give when we can.
In our 4 years of existence, we have donated to:
- Jonnycake Center of Peace Dale
- Save the Bay
- Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County
- Animal Rescue Rhode Island
- Friends of Homeless Animals
- Welcome House of South County
- South County Community Action Inc.
- The Courthouse Center for the Arts
- South Kingstown Museum
- South County Museum
- and many more!
Unfortunately, we are just one independent bookstore and must be judicious in how much we can do and to whom. Please understand that because we receive so many requests, we are not able to accommodate every organization. We reserve the right to limit the frequency of support.
All donation requests must be made through this website at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the event. No donation requests will be accepted in the store. Please clearly outline what you are requesting. Upon submission of your request, you will receive an email acknowledgment of your request.
