New books for old

In exchange for used books, DHL Express Cayman is offering to hand over up to 700 new composition books to students.

As part of the “Go Green & Back to School” initiative, on Saturday, Aug. 13, DHL will be collecting composition and children’s story books that are no longer in use, and the public is invited to participate.

Beginning at 9 a.m., the free exchange event will take place at DHL’s Mary Street location, the company said in a press release announcing the initiative.

According to DHL, all used composition books collected will be recycled, while donated story books for children will be given to the Ministry of Education. The trade event will continue until all new 700 books last. There is a limit of five books per adult, organizers said.

DHL’s Allan Blake, “DHL Express Cayman is committed in doing our part in protecting the environment as well as contributing to the future of education in the Cayman Islands. This occasion combines both passions and we look forward to making this an annual event.”
