Donate items to children in need

The Grandview Library is a donation spot for the Ohio Kiwanis's Project Backpack, which provides free backpacks filled with personal items to children who have been removed from their homes via Children’s Services

See suggested item list below, and bring in your donation! 

A collection box is located just inside the Library's parking lot doors. 

The project goes continues through October 1, 2012.

From the Ohio Kiwanis website:
Across Ohio, between 10,000 and 12,000 children are removed from their homes on an emergency basis for their protection, often without anything but the clothes they are wearing. This is very traumatic for them as they are separated from family, friends, schools and churches. First Lady Cheryl wants to show these children that someone cares by providing inexpensive backpacks, with personal care items, and small toys and stuffed animals to these children in all 88 counties of Ohio.

List of suggested donation items:
  • sample size soap
  • shampoo
  • toothpaste
  • deodorant
  • tooth brushes
  • combs
  • brushes
  • hair ties
  • small toys
  • small blankets
  • diapers
  • baby wipes
  • baby bottles
  • pacifiers
  • children’s socks
  • hats
  • gloves
  • pajamas
  • underwear
  • infant body suits (Onesies)
  • sleepers

Thank you for your donation!
