Local Boy Scout Owen Chaffin seeks used books for his Eagle Scout Project.

Bethel Park resident Owen Chaffin is a Boy Scout in South Park Troop 510 at Grace Lutheran Church, and he is pursuing his Eagle Scout rank – the highest honor in scouting.   He is looking for assistance from the local community on his Eagle Scout project. 

Owen is organizing a used book donation drive and postage fundraiser throughout the month of May, 2022.  The beneficiary of his service project is The Pittsburgh Prison Book Project (PPBP) that sends  appropriate and good condition, new and used books to incarcerated people across Pennsylvania and funds for postage.

He has partnered with the municipality of Bethel Park to set up a booth at their Farmers' Market in South Park along Corrigan Drive every Tuesday in May from 3:00PM – 7:00PM where people can stop by and drop off their book donations.   The booth will also have a ‘Pennies for Postage’ collection jar where people can donate to help pay for the postage of the book, which averages about $1 per book.   Book donation boxes are also located at the South Park Library and Bethel Park Library.   

Books sought are: non-fiction books, dictionaries, puzzle books, DIY, history, small business, hobbies, trades, how-to, drawing/artwork, and novels.   Now is a perfect time for ‘spring cleaning’ where you can gather all of those books you’ve read (or will never get around to reading) and donate them to help this local boy scout.
