APPRECIATION STATION & BOOK DRIVE
People text, send emails, tweet, post and share on a daily basis, yet many don’t take the time to write thank you notes.
The family volunteer group called Little Helpers is setting up an “Appreciation Station” at the Monroe Branch Library located at 809 Monroe Avenue in Rochester on Saturday, June 6 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. We will be in the children's area.
The public is encouraged to stop by and make thank you cards for free. We will supply the paper, pens, markers and stickers. You can bring any kind of paper, any size.
Please sign up for shifts, at least 30 minutes please.
If possible, bring new or gently used books to donate to the library. Some will be donated to local shelters.
Our contact person at the library is Mary Clare Scheg.
ABOUT LITTLE HELPERS:
Little Helpers has been helping children help others since December 2010. The family volunteer group holds monthly service projects for children of all ages. The program is designed to help young people understand the value of volunteering, recognize the blessings in their lives, broaden their community perspective and feel the sense of accomplishment received from lending a helping hand. The ultimate goal of the program is to raise confident children who see giving back to the community as a normal aspect of their lives. Little Helpers was created in Memphis, but today has chapters across the country including the Rochester area. Members of that group are from Pittsford, Penfield, Webster, Spencerport, Henrietta, Brighton, Gates and Caledonia. You can find the group on Facebook at
