Library is a Donation Site for Sarah’s Inn Holiday Gift Project

Celebrate the season by dropping off a gift donation for Sarah’s Inn Holiday Gift Project, their annual toy and gift drive. We will be accepting donations until Monday, December 5th.

They are hoping to distribute 1,000 gifts to the 300 families they serve. The donation box is located in the lobby just outside the children’s room. Below is a link to the items they are requesting and a link to volunteer on the day of the distribution event. 

How you can help:

  • •Donate new and unwrapped toys and books (either from the wish list or the ideas below)
  • •Organize a toy drive at your office, church, on your block, or at your book club
  • •Spread the word! Share information about the Holiday Gift Project with friends and neighbors
