January & February 2023
We are pleased to announce our continued partnership with our local food pantry, Parkland CARES. We will continue to collect food donations for those in need.
With their help, we established a permanent donation bin located in our front entryway for our patrons to place their items. This greatly benefits the food pantry, since donations can now be accepted during the library’s hours at your convenience. We also have a dedicated volunteer who comes once a week to deliver the donations directly to the food pantry.
Approximately 27% of the Parkland community is currently food insecure, and we are proud to assist the food pantry with their mission to end hunger in our community.
