BIRMINGHAM, Ala.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Books-A-Million and the BAM Brigade surpassed the donation goal of $1
million for the 3rd Annual Holiday Book and Toy Drive. All
Books-A-Million locations participated in the drive for local charities
and the campaign has exceeded its goal of $1 million each year it has
been held.

The Holiday Book and Toy drive marks another successful campaign for the
BAM Brigade, as it continues to support the local communities in which
Books-A-Million serves.

“It is important during the holidays to give back to our local
communities, and we knew we could count on the BAM Brigade to give their
full support to this donation drive,” said Scott Kappler, Vice President
of Marketing for Books-A-Million. “It is exciting to know that these
efforts will help make the holiday season a little brighter for some
this year.”

referencing the Dr. Seuss Christmas classic, “How the Grinch Stole
Christmas.” Artwork from the popular story was given to Books-A-Million
