I am unable to attend the live events at the Gratitude Festival/Walkathon/etc. Did I miss purchasing books?

You did not miss the opportunity to purchase Barefoot Books and still support UMCS. You may order your books online. Books ordered through Maceo will be delivered to the school office. She will send you an email letting you know when they have arrived.

How long does the fundraiser last?

The fundraiser continues until June 11th, 2015.

My parents (or friends, aunts, third cousin, etc) live out of state; if they order books online could they be shipped to my house?

Yes, you may input a different shipping address than the billing address.

Can I pick up the books locally, instead of paying for shipping?

For small orders (under $60) it is possible to arrange pickup locally, depending on what is in stock. Please contact, Maceo Cabrera Estevez, Barefoot Books Ambassador for details.

I have three birthday parties to go to this weekend and I don’t have time to order. What do I do?

Contact Maceo and she will let you know if the books you want are in her inventory or she will give you alternative suggestions. She is more than happy to meet you at the school to deliver the books.

My aunt wants to order books but doesn’t have computer access. Is there a way you could help her?

Yes! If a family member or friend wants to purchase books but does not want to do it online, Maceo would be more than happy to assist them over the phone. She can send them a catalog and she accepts checks and money orders as payments.

How much money does UMCS receive?

UMCS will receive 20% of sales.
