The Great Give Back – 10/13

The Great Give Back 2018
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Second Annual Great Give Back Day will be held on Saturday, October 13. This is a Suffolk Cooperative Library System initiative, and the mission of the day is to provide opportunities for library patrons to participate in meaningful, service-oriented activities.  We’re asking patrons to help support our furry friends! There will be two special youth community service opportunities on that date. Teen volunteers (grades 7 – 12) will make healthy, delicious “no bake” dog treats, along with dog bandanas with heartfelt messages. Kids in grades 5 & 6 will create dog toys.  By participating in these classes, volunteers will learn the joy of giving back to others, and they will also earn community service credit.  The treats, toys, and bandanas will be donated to local pet shelters and animal rescue and advocacy organizations.

Teens in grades 7 – 12, to register for the Dog Treats volunteer opportunity, click here now.

Kids in grades 5 & 6, register here starting 9/29 for the Dog Toys volunteer opportunity.

In keeping with the theme of animals, October 13 will be the official kick-off of our Pet Food Drive, which will run through the end of the month.  We’ll be collecting new, unopened pet food (both canned and dry), and all are welcome to donate (residents or nonresidents) during Library hours.  There will be a table located in the Library’s lobby.  Teen volunteers will also help run the drive by picking up food and dropping it off at various locations.
