Operation Paperback is collecting books to send to American troops overseas

SAN ANTONIO – There is an efficient and fast way you can help out our military men and women across the world: Operation Paperback.

Operation Paperback is a national, non-profit organization whose volunteers collect gently-used books and send them to American troops overseas, as well as veterans and military families here at home.

Gunn Auto Group and their Gunn Gives volunteers are helping out Operation Paperback to collect books and distribute them to those servicemen deployed on ships, as well as veterans recuperating in VA hospitals.

Until this coming Saturday, books may be dropped off at all five Gunn Auto San Antonio dealerships: Nissan, Chevrolet, Buick/GMC, Honda and Acura, at their three collision centers, as well as at Gunn Nissan of Denton.
