This holiday season at Harvard Book Store and harvard.com, shop with us on any of the four Sundays after Thanksgiving; a portion of every purchase will go to support important local organizations. Your purchases will help support 826 Boston, Community Cooks, and On The Rise.
The Gives Back program is a way for Harvard Book Store to contribute to local nonprofits during the holidays. On four consecutive Sundays, a percentage of in-store and online sales will go to our selected charitable organizations.
826 Boston is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Learn more about 826 Boston here.
Community Cooks mobilizes individuals, businesses, civic, educational, and faith-based groups to prepare home-cooked food for vulnerable populations seeking assistance from human service agencies in the Greater Boston area. Learn more about Community Cooks here.
On The Rise creates a community where women have the relationships, safety, and resources they need to move out of homelessness. They engage with those most in need and support their initiative and strength as they move beyond crisis and discover new possibilities. Learn more about On The Rise here.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
