FOOD FOR LOCAL PANTRIES
COATS FOR LOCAL SHELTERS
OCTOBER 1, – DECEMBER 31, 2020
On October 17, 2020 libraries from across the Hudson Valley will be participating in The Great Give Back, a state-wide initiative to provide a day of opportunities for library patrons to participate in meaningful community service experiences.
This year the Claverack Free Library will be collecting donations of shelf-stable, unexpired food items to benefit local food pantries in our area.
We will also be collecting donations of clean, gently used winter coats to be distributed to various shelters nearby.
During library hours, food items can be placed in designated food bins. Coats must be in plastic bags and placed in the designated coat bins.
M, W, F, 2:00 – 5:00 pm and Sat, 11:00 -2:00 pm
Next Saturday, October 17, 2020 hundreds of volunteers will gather along New York City and Hudson Valley shorelines, taking part in the largest annual one-day cleanup in the Hudson River Estuary. Will you be part of it?
