The Sertoma Club of York is pleased to support Operation Paperback by collecting and donating books for a special cause.

Operation Paperback began in 1999, sending its first shipments to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Since then the non-for-profit organization has facilitated the shipment of 2.2 million books to over 30 locations overseas.

In addition to overseas locations, Operation Paperback provides books to wounded warrior programs and veterans hospitals located within the United States, as well as USO centers at US Airport transit points.  Many of the books collected by the Sertoma Club of York are donated to our local VA Hospital network in south central PA.

Recently the VA Butler Healthcare shared gratitude for our efforts with the following written statement:

"We greatly appreciate your continued interest and support of the Veterans at, and served through our facility, and thank you for helping us to provide services and programs to Americas’ heroes today and tomorrow.”
