Make your next visit to the Library a brief one, for a good cause, as part of Flower Memorial Library’s Drop Your Drawers campaign.
Drop off packages of new underwear for children (sizes 4-16) or packages of diapers from October 1-31 at the circulation desk on the main floor. Donations will help replenish Watertown elementary schools’ supplies of emergency underpants and provide diapers for the Healthy Families program of the North Country Prenatal / Perinatal Council to distribute.
The need is great. Schools hand out underwear to children who need clean underwear due to accidents at school or issues at home. Because it may take a while for a parent to leave work, drive home to grab a fresh pair of underwear, and head to the school, children miss valuable learning time in the classroom.
This is the third year the Library will participate in the Drop Your Drawers Campaign. As such, the Library’s goal is to receive 500 pairs of underwear or diaper packages. Underwear will be distributed evenly to elementary schools in the city of Watertown.
Underwear may be dropped off at the circulation desk of Flower Memorial Library. While you’re here, by all means, stay awhile and enjoy the library’s many services! For more information about the campaign call us at 315.785.7714. Help us keep a child’s school day comfortable and clean.
