6th Annual Food Drive at Emma Clark Library

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Setauket, NY – June 6, 2018 –

During the month of July, Emma Clark Library’s teen volunteers will be collecting nonperishable food items and toiletries, which will be donated to local food pantries.  Donation boxes will be located in the Library lobby to the left of the Circulation Desk.  Teen volunteers will be collecting the contributions, sorting them, and delivering them to various food pantries throughout the community.  Some suggestions for food items include cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned fruits and vegetables, rice, beans, tuna fish, juice, pasta, and pasta sauce.  The food pantries can also use men’s and women’s socks, diapers, wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream, disposable razors, shampoo, and conditioner.

This summer, the Library will also be collecting manufacturer’s coupons, expired or not, in conjunction with R.C. Murphy Junior High School’s Girl Scout Troop 1234’s Silver Award Project.  There will be a box on the food drive table.  These coupons will be sorted by the Scouts and donated to the Support Our Troops® Troopons® program, which distributes coupons to military families serving around the world.

If you have any questions about the food drive or would like to become a teen volunteer, you may contact Nanette Feder, Teen Services Librarian, at 941-4080 ext. 116 or email her at teens@emmaclark.org.


The Emma S. Clark Memorial Library, located at 120 Main Street in Setauket and on the web at www.emmaclark.org, provides public library service to all residents of the Three Village Central School District.
