The Community Pantry

Global Give-A-Book was delighted to receive sweet thank-you notes from the children at the other end of our community project at the Community Pantry of Gallup.

Seeing our efforts and your contributions come to life in the form of smiles and admiration is all the encouragement we need to ensure every child has access to a new, quality book.

A smile is only a book away; give to GGAB today.

Our partnership with The Community Pantry of Gallup, New Mexico, sees hundreds of books distributed to the children this excellent organization serves. We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to end hunger and illiteracy in the children of our communities!


“Thank you so much for your incredible partnership and helping The Food Depot to provide so many wonderful books to youth who attend some of our programs.”

Featured Titles of GGAB

GGAB prides itself on giving high-quality, award-winning books, including Caldecott-awarded titles.

#GGABooks are first lovingly and individually packaged with a bookmark. The book is then given to the children we serve via our community project partners. The packaged book is a gift and should be presented as such. Every child deserves to feel the excitement of receiving a new #GGABook!

See the impact, BE the impact! Your story matters!

How has Global Give-A-Book impacted your life?

We would love to know! Experiences are how we learn and grow into a better organization. Thank you for taking the time to share!


In these challenging times, children need our support more than ever.

Our vision is to put books in the hands of more children to inspire a lifelong love of reading and educational success.

It would be amazing if we can count on your help and support.
