Volunteer and get rewarded in discounted books from an iconic Brooklyn staple. Win-win. (via Flickr user dwwebber)

We love Greenlight Bookstore (686 Fulton Street) for their great selection and community involvement, so it comes as little surprise they are offering an awesome volunteer opportunity that will get  you a discount on holiday book shopping when you help out with gift wrapping — for a good cause. 

If you’re decent with tape and scissors, Greenlight needs volunteers for the following shifts:

• December 6 and 7: 10am – 1:30pm, 1:30pm – 5pm, 5pm – 8:30pm
• December 23: 1:30pm – 5pm
• December 24: 10am – 1:30pm and 1:30pm – 5pm

Each slot needs two volunteers, so grab a friend! All tips will go directly to the Food Bank for New York City, and you’ll be rewarded for your do-goodery by receiving 20% off whatever your little bookworm heart desires the day you volunteer.
