library collects donations for the “Drop Your Drawers” campaign | New
The public is invited to donate new packages of underwear for children in need, as part of the McCracken County Public Library’s annual campaign.
Throughout the month of December the library will be collecting packages of new children’s underwear, preferably sizes 4-16. Donations help replenish emergency underwear stocks at the Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center and the Paducah Cooperative Ministry, providing assistance to each organization.
This is the fifth year that the library has participated in the statewide âDrop Your Drawersâ ââcampaign. Over the years, she has distributed nearly 5,000 pairs of new underwear. Despite COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, it recorded a record number of donations of more than 1,500 pairs.
There are three ways to donate. New underwear can be dropped off in the special bin in the library parking lot during opening hours. It can also be brought inside the second floor exhibit, or if someone orders online, they can send the donation directly to the McCracken County Public Library Library, c / o Drop Your Drawers , 555 Washington St., Paducah, KY 42003.
