As part of the MLK Day of Service on 1/15, the library is collecting NEW stuffed animals, blankets, and children’s books for Project Night-Night which gives children in homeless shelters a tote bag with a book, stuffed friend, and a book. The collection box is located in front of the display table. The items we collect will stay local–Bethesda Mission and the YWCA of Greater Harrisburg for Project Night Night.
Project Night Night’s mission is to provide free Night Night Packages to children in shelters from birth to pre-teen who need childhood essentials to have a concrete and predicable source of security and increased exposure to high-quality literacy materials during a time of upheaval. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children’s book, and a stuffed animal – all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. Thank you for your kindness.
