We No Longer Take Book Donations
To better serve our youth, we no longer accept book donations at our Covenant House Alaska youth engagement center, however, you can still put your book donation towards helping youth at Covenant House.
Our friends at Title Wave Books have made it possible for you to donate your in-store shopping credit to Covenant House Alaska's account when you sell your gently used books! All credits donated will go towards purchasing books and study materials for Covenant House Alaska youth.
Title Wave Books is located at 1360 West Northern Lights Boulevard.
They are open Monday through Saturday from 10am-7pm and Sunday from 11am-7pm.
Book buy-back counter hours: Daily until 6pm.
Thank you for dropping your books at Title Wave to benefit the youth we serve!
Amazon Wish List
Community support is also welcomed through giving from our seasonal Amazon Wish List. This list is filled with an assortment of things that would improve the lives of our youth at Covenant House Alaska and is updated based on the needs of the season. When you choose to purchase something from the Wish List, Amazon will automatically populate your address book at checkout with a Gift Address (c/o Development Office) and your gift will be sent directly to our Youth Engagement Center.
