Mercedes-Benz USA and Atlanta Falcons’ Bijan Robinson Team Up with Little Free Library to Build 175 Book-Sharing Boxes Across the Country

April 25, 2024

Yesterday, Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) employees and Atlanta Falcons player Bijan Robinson joined forces with nonprofit organization Little Free Library to build 175 book-sharing boxes, which will be filled with thousands of donated books and installed in communities across the country that have limited access to reading materials, including communities in Atlanta. Little Free Library aims to promote literacy and community engagement by offering free access to books through small, publicly accessible book-sharing stations. Users are encouraged to take a book they are interested in reading and leave a book they have finished for others to enjoy, fostering a continuous cycle of reading and sharing within their neighborhood.

The event was part of MBUSA’s National Volunteer Week program, which features a series of give-back opportunities for employees. The collaboration with Little Free Library reinforces MBUSA’s commitment to promoting literacy through its corporate social responsibility program, Driving Your Future, aiming to empower the next generation by supporting educational programs, career readiness and child safety.
