Make your next visit to the Library a brief one, for a good cause, as part of Boone County Public Library’s Drop Your Drawers campaign.
Visit any Boone County Public Library location from December 1-31 to drop off packages of new underwear for boys and girls, preferably sizes 4-16, and children’s socks. Donations will help replenish Boone County elementary schools’ supplies of emergency underpants and socks and provide direct assistance to each school’s Family Resource Center.
The need is great. Schools are handing out underwear and socks to children who have accidents at school or issues at home. Because parents are often unable to bring fresh underwear to their children during school hours, children can miss valuable learning time in the classroom.
Underwear and socks may be dropped off at any BCPL location. By all means, stay awhile and enjoy the Library’s many services. (We don’t really want you to make your visit brief!)
The Drop Your Drawers campaign is easily recognizable by the popular character of Captain Underpants by author and illustrator Dav Pilkey.
