Donate to the Troops - Friday Nov. 12th 5:30-7:30 pm
Calling all Hancock residents! Josh Moreen is a Hancock native currently serving in Afghanistan. Let’s send Josh and other soldiers care packages to help them through the holidays. Bring the following items to the library on Friday November 12th between 5:30 & 7:30 pm and we will make sure they get sent on to Afghanistan (thanks to the American Legion Post 11 in Jaffrey who will be packaging these items on Sat. Nov. 13th). Items needed: HOME MADE BAKED GOODS (ie cookies)! The American Legion will put them in vacuum-sealed packaging so that they arrive in good shape. Also needed: pocket-sized Gold Bond Powder, foot creams, dental floss, individual Kleenex packets, chapstick, disposable razors, toothpaste & toothbrushes, sunblock, deodorant, Q-tips, eye drops & saline nasal spray. Food donations may also include: high protein snacks and power bars, beef jerky, sardines, dried/canned/foil vegetables & fruits, hard candy, canned/foil tuna and chicken. For a more complete list please visit the library. And consider a cash donation to help pay to ship all these items – we have a donation can at the library. Please help spread the word! For more information, call Amy at the library: 525-4411.
