The Henrico Christmas Mother donation season is coming up, and our Teen Advisory Boards are asking for your help. They want to be able to deliver A LOT of books this year to the Christmas Mother and would appreciate your donations of new or gently-used books for children and teens.
Who is the Christmas Mother? From their website:
Even in a relatively prosperous county like Henrico, there are many who struggle to provide basic necessities. Since 1942, Henrico Christmas Mother’s mission has been to provide holiday assistance to Henrico families with children, seniors age 65+ and disabled adults in the form of food, new clothing, books, toys and other gift items to those we serve.
Henrico County Public Library contributes by receiving your book donations throughout November. When the Christmas Mother starts taking their donations on December 3rd, we deliver the books we have collected to the Christmas Mother’s warehouse, where they will be distributed to people who will appreciate and love them.
All of our libraries have donation boxes where you can bring your children’s and teen books. We’re not picky; as long as they are in good shape, we’ll take them. Please drop off your donation by Saturday, November 29.
We hope you will donate a few books this year. They will make someone’s Christmas a little brighter.
