Help for the Homeless

For the 5th year in a row, Kimberly-Little Chute Public Library is participating in a drive to collect new hygiene items for Help for the Homeless. And to inspire you to donate to this worthy cause, we are offering a Fines Amnesty period for the length of the drive, March 3-30, 2014. Receive $1 off your library fines for every item you donate to Help for the Homeless during this period. (Your donation is not applicable toward fees for damaged or lost materials or bills.) All donations go to support agencies working with the homeless in the Fox Cities. Here's an example of how your donations can change lives:

"Our clientele often have been couch hopping and/or have not had a stable place of their own for quite some time. The support we get through this drive allows us to offer our residents and their children the items they need, like diapers, wipes, toothbrushes and shampoo. These simple provisions, that we often take for granted, allow us to help our residents reach larger goals like employment, education and parenting. 'When I came to the House of Hope, I had nothing but the clothes on my back. I was immediately provided the hygiene products I needed and I really appreciated how comfortable it made me feel to know I didn’t have to worry about these things and I had everything I needed.
From a House of Hope Program Resident -Carrie Schatzman, House of Hope Program Manager
