Drop Your Drawers at the Library! @ JCPL
Nov 1 @ 12:00 am – Dec 30 @ 11:59 pm

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. Jessamine County schools hand out around 50 pairs of underwear 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!
