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.
