Help us get the Books, CDs, DVDs and Games we need to Transform our Lives!

More Than Words depends on your book, CD's, DVD's, and Video Games donations to grow, thrive and employ and empower youth!  Here are some of the ways your books help us move our business and our lives forward.

We are unable to accept encyclopedias, VHS tapes, audio cassettes or magazines/periodicals.

Where does my donation go?

Your donations go directly into our teams hands as we manage our own retail and online used book business, café, and community space. We develop the employment skills, leadership, and self-confidence we need to successfully transition to adulthood. More Than Words holds us to a high standard, and that influence helps us stay out of trouble. Before MTW a lot of us were on the streets making poor decisions, and now we’re running a business and taking charge of our lives!

Your books, CDs, DVDs and Games are our Building Blocks.

Not only do we learn skills by selling books, but the earned revenue also makes it possible for More Than Words to exist. The revenue not only covers all of the youth stipends, but it also enables MTW to provide us workshops that teach us how to budget our money, plan our education, and build a resume. We also go on site visits to learn more about different companies and colleges; even things as simple as touring a college campus or vocational school can help us determine our future goals. Without MTW we wouldn’t know about these options.

What does MTW do with the donations that you cannot use?

We never throw a book away. Books donated to More Than Words are used to generate revenue for the organization at each level. We sell online, in our stores and wholesale. Each book is processed for best fit for each part of our business. We recycle less than 1% of donated books due to condition. We also support a number of charities, libraries, and schools - all around the world - with donated books that  help them achieve their missions as well.

Donations help our business and us to grow, continue our work, and help more youth in the future. From all of us at More Than Words, thank you for your generous donations and support.
