November Book Drive at Revival Food Hall

November Book Drive at Revival Food Hall

During the month of November, Revival Food Hall is hosting a book drive to benefit Books First Chicago, an organization focused on putting a library in every under-served Chicago public school that doesn't have one of their own.

Donation bins are available in the hall near the Clark Street and Adams Street entrances. We hope you'll join us in donating to this very important cause.
