El Rio Community Health Center seeks volunteers in preparation of its book distribution event.

Volunteers are wanted to help unload, sort and count 80,000 donated children's books from First Book to be distributed to children across the city.

The center needs help March 1 and March 2 at Tucson Frozen Storage at 6964 E. Century Park Drive, near Kolb and Interstate 10.

Health Center officials said water and snacks will be provided for all volunteers. The shifts are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., though volunteers can come and go as they please.

The organization will distribute the books to more than 600 pre-registered schools and organizations on March 8 and March 9.
