We will be open today from 9 AM - 4 PM so stop by and rent those books before the rush next week !!! If you can't make it by the store you can also purchase/rent your books from our website at www.dorksbooks.com
During this holiday season, we are especially thankful that you choose to rent your textbooks with Dorks! Each textbook rental allows us to provide meals to children at a school in the Bugali region of Uganda, through the Dorks Food Table Program.
Meet Maneno. He is twelve years old and was born in a rural village in Uganda. When Maneno was a small child, his father fell seriously ill and eventually died, leaving his mother to provide for him and his brother. Mane...no’s troubles continued as his mother often acted out violently against him, beating him severely with a cane. Food was scare in his family, and he regularly went hungry.
His life changed when he met Pastor Nicolas, who runs the school in Bugali. He and his brother now board at the school where they receive shelter, an education, and the food they need to grow into healthy adults. Maneno is a good student and dreams of one day becoming a driver.
Because of your rentals, many schoolchildren like Maneno receive a nutritious meal every day through the Dorks Food Table Program. In the month of November, we provided 1,379 meals. #endhunger
From everyone at Dorks, we would like to wish you happy holidays!
First of all we want to say thanks for renting your books with us! We know you have many options in today’s economy and we’re honored that you chose to do business with us. We wanted to give you all an update on the recently launched DORKS Food Table Program.
We partnered with a school on Lake Victoria, Uganda, to provide meals for their students. We launched the program this semester and for every rental we were able to provide meals for the students. Thanks to yo...u, for the month of September we provided 1,354 meals! Because of your rentals with DORKS, these meals will continue throughout the school year. We know this is just the beginning of something wonderful! If you’d like to know more about the school and the organization we work with please visit www.helpinghandsmissions.org. There will be more updates to come. For now, we want to say thank you! #endhunger
