Capitol Hill Hotel Presents: Oh, The Places You’ll Go With Literacy Book Drive

Did you know that students not reading on grade level by the end of the 3rd grade are 4x’s MORE LIKELY to drop out of high school?  Donate this March and help us improve literacy and make a difference in the lives of children in need!

Celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd with Capitol Hill Hotel! All month long, Capitol Hill Hotel will collect books and donations for local children in need in the Washington, D.C. area.

And join us for a special wine reception on March 2nd from 5pm – 7pm to celebrate the launch of our month-long Book Drive.

3 Ways to Participate

  1. Donate any children’s book* by placing it in our lobby drop-off­ box.
  2. Purchase a Dr. Seuss classic for sale in our hotel library.
  3. Make a $$ donation to be added to your hotel bill.

*We’re collecting books for readers under age 12. Books should be new or gently used. In the interest of being sensitive to the current situation of the child receiving the books, no books with family, holiday or religious messaging.
