BooksKC is a project of the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City (RIKC)
A Little About Us...
BooksKC is a unique book recycler and reseller. When you donate books to the project, 100% of the revenue generated from repurposing the books will go toward providing jobs and job training for individuals with disabilities right here in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
When BooksKC, an award winning Missouri Recycling Association 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, began in 2012 it employed four individuals with disabilities. As of March 2015, that number has grown to 15. The project is also utilized for job training and skill assessment.
The more books the project receives through your generous donations, the more jobs and services we can provide to individuals with disabilities right here in the Kansas City Metropolitan area.
Thank you for considering BooksKC as your choice for both donating and purchasing books!
