SMITH COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIETY ALLIANCE BOOK FAIR FOUNDATION DONATIONS
If you are interested in donating to the Book Fair Foundation please download and use the Donation Form located on the ALLIANCE FORMS page.
The Smith County Medical Society Alliance Book Fair Foundation has raised over $700,000.00 for health career scholarships in the East Texas area and we also fund other ongoing health projects in our community.
Over the past 43 years, our semi-annual Book Fair sales have allowed us to fund:
Over 1000 Health Career Scholarships
$25,000.00 TJC Presidential Scholarship
$25,000.00 UT Tyler Presidential Nursing Scholarship
$25,000.00 UT Tyler Masters of Nursing Scholarship
In 1975, Smith County physicians contributed money to build our first Book Fair building, which we called the candystripe building, on DC Drive, to store, sort, and sell donated books. Since then our project has grown signifcantly and we needed more space.
In 2012 thanks to donations from members and the community we are now housed in an energy efficient building with greater square footage at 2004 Broussard Street, just down the street from our old building. This new building has given us room to grow, and enabled us to increase proceeds for our scholarships.
Have books you want to donte to our twice yearly sales? Either drop them off on the shelves in front of the Book Fair Building at 2400 Broussard Street or email by using the form in the CONTACT US section and someone will arrange pickup. Donations can be made any day, at any time. Donated books are brought in daily.
For a donation receipt, please leave your name and address information with your donation.
We do not accept Magazines, Law Books or Medical Books.
CURRENTLY DUE TO SMITH COUNTY STAY AT HOME ORDERS WE HAVE SUSPENDED ALL BOOK DONATION COLLECTIONS.
Donations are always welcome and appreciated.
