Stocking Stuffer Campaign
September 8 through December 11
Orphan Train focuses on children who were up for adoption. In light of that, the Howard Couty Reads Committee would like to give back to the community, in particular those without parents. The Villages, Indiana's largest not-for-profit child and family services agency, is in need of "stocking stuffer" supplies for older children, children currently in the foster system. Each KHCPL location, the Greentown Public Library, and the Indiana University Kokomo Library will serve as drop-off locations to help us "Stuff the Stockings."
Although most events are free, we highly encourage you to bring a Stocking Stuffer item to any Howard County Reads event.
Suggested Items include:
