Make your next visit to the Library a brief one, for a good cause, as part of Jessamine County Public Library’s Drop Your Drawers campaign.
Drop off packages of new underwear for boys and girls, preferably sizes 4-16, from November 1 – December 30, at the Customer Service Desk. Donations will help replenish Jessamine County schools’ supplies of emergency underpants and provide direct assistance to each school’s Family Resource Centers.
The need is great. Each elementary school in Jessamine County schools hand out around 50 pairs of underwear, per month, to children who need clean ones due to accidents at school or issues at home. Because parents often are unable to bring fresh underwear to their children during school hours, children can miss valuable learning time in the classroom.
For each new, unopened pack of underwear you donate at the Customer Service Desk your name will be entered to win a $50 Visa gift card!
