• Help for the Homeless

    We are collecting new hygiene and cleaning items for local homeless shelters and crisis agencies through 91.9/91.5 The Family’s annual Help for the Homeless hygiene drive, February 22 to March 15. Please place your donations in the collection box located near the front entrance of the library by March 15.

    Supplying these items to the shelters will help them direct their limited resources to providing qualified staff, counseling, food and shelter to those they serve. The most requested items include laundry detergent, garbage bags, dental and hair care items, diapers and baby care and tissue. Your donations will remain in this community. For more information visit the Help for the Homeless web page or call 800-236-9364.
