Kent Library Project Night Night Drive

Project Night Night Begins Monday, December 2nd

Project Night Night is an organization that gives new stuffed toys, blankets, and books to children in homeless shelters. You may contribute new kids’ books, new stuffed animals (no larger than 12 inches), and new blankets. Blankets should be no larger than 50’ by 60’ – “stroller sized” and can often be found in the baby department of stores like Target. You can also donate money if you are unable to buy the items. Donations can be given directly to Ms. Jelen in the Kent Library.

The drive will culminate on Tuesday, December 17th.

If you have any questions, please see Ms. Jelen in the Kent Library.

Thank you for giving the gift of reading and comfort to local children in need!
