Drop Your Drawers at the Library

Make your next visit to the Library a brief one, for a good cause, as part of Pendleton County Public Library’s Drop Your Drawers campaign.

Drop off packages of new underwear and/or socks for boys and girls, preferably sizes 4-16, from November 1 – December 17, at the Library.  Donations will help replenish Pendleton County schools’ supplies of emergency underpants and socks, and provide direct assistance to each school’s Family Resource Centers.

 

Drop Your Drawers @ the Library

                                           

Make your next visit to the Library a brief one, for a good cause, as part of Pendleton County Public Library’s Drop Your Drawers campaign.

Drop off packages of new underwear and/or socks for boys and girls, preferably sizes 4-16, from November 1 – December 17, at the Library. Donations will help replenish Pendleton County schools’ supplies of emergency underpants and socks, and provide direct assistance to each school’s Family Resource Centers.

The need is great. Schools are handing out 10 pairs a month to children who need clean underwear or socks due to accidents at school or issues at home. Because parents often are unable to bring fresh underwear or socks to their children during school hours, children can miss valuable learning time in the classroom.

The Library’s goal is to receive 300 pairs. Underwear and socks will be distributed evenly to schools in Pendleton County. The schools are: Northern Elementary, Southern Elementary, Phillip Sharp Middle School, and Pendleton County Public High School.

The Drop Your Drawers campaign is easily recognizable by the popular character of Captain Underpants by author and illustrator Dav Pilkey. 

The library’s collection of Captain Underpants’ children’s books will be on display (and available to check out) during the Drop Your Drawers campaign.  By all means, stay awhile and enjoy the library’s many services. (The Library doesn’t really want you to make your visit brief!)  For more information about the campaign, visit www.pcplibrary.org.

Underwear and/or socks may be dropped off at Pendleton County Public Library at 801 Robbins Avenue in Falmouth.
