Give a Little, Help a Lot!

This season we have two opportunities to help others less fortunate.  We are now accepting donations for the Share Your Holidays Food Drive and the Toys for Tots program.   There is a big box set up by the Children's Reference desk.  Just bring your nonperishable food donations or unwrapped new toy donations.  Drop them in the box and we will see that they get to a family or child in need.
