Donations for Center for Youth

This month, through mid-May, we are accepting donations to the Center for Youth. Started by kids, for kids, the Center for Youth partner with youth to realize their full potential, by creating opportunities, removing barriers and promoting social justice.

The Center for Youth is looking for a variety of donations: food, toiletries, new or gently used clothes for teens, diapers, formula, and more. Check out their Amazon Wishlist for more specific needs. Drop off your donations in the special collection box located in the library’s atrium.
