Coclico, the fashion-forward and eco-friendly footwear brand and Book Drive for Kids, a non-profit organization that donates new and gently-used books to needy children, have teamed up to collect books for children in need during the month of November.

Coclico’s Fall 11 collection is named after literary greats such as Capote, Hemingway, Plath and Cervantes. The collections’ connection to literature led to the idea to bring great books to children that don’t have access to them.

“Coclico’s Fall Collection pays homage to great authors and we thought what better way to promote literature then by donating books to kids who need them,” said Sandra Canselier, owner of Coclico. “We are excited to be part of Book Drive for Kids’ mission to provide books to disadvantaged children. We’re so happy that Coclico can be part of this mission.”

ABOUT BOOK DRIVE FOR KIDS: (http://www.bookdriveforkids.com)

Book Drive For Kids is a nonprofit charity seeking to empty dusty shelves and put children’s books into the hands of disadvantaged children. Many families and organizations have children’s books they no longer need or use. Most low-income and at-risk children have no books of their own. Book Drive For Kids seeks to put the two together.
