Rose Pest Solutions and Northwestern Athletics have teamed up again to support Bernie’s Book Bank as a part of the Books for Buckets program. Throughout 2018-19 season Rose Pest Solutions donated 12 children’s books for every three-point basket the Northwestern Men’s Basketball team made. In total, 5,200 books were donated. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 season, the Northwestern Men’s Basketball team aims to sink even more baskets to increase the number of books donated to Bernie’s Book Bank.

In conjunction with Books for Buckets, Rose Pest Solutions and Northwestern Athletics are offering an opportunity for Wildcat fans to get involved and support Bernie’s Book Bank. You can donate gently used children’s books to the Rose Pest Solutions tent located in Wildcat Alley before the Northwestern football game vs. Iowa on October 26th, 2019. For every six gently used children books donated, you will receive one Northwestern Men’s Basketball ticket to TBD home game (limit of six tickets per person). All books donated should be appropriate for children birth-6th grade; please no textbooks, reference material, religious books or foreign language books (dual language is ok).

Can’t make it to the game in October? You can donate books and receive basketball tickets at Bernie’s Book Bank from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday from now through December 1st. You can also donate books at the Rose Pest Solutions location nearest you. Below are the participating locations:
