The Niles-Maine District Library staff members gave back to the community with their 10th annual Thanksgiving donation to Niles Family Services on Wednesday, November 17.
Staff members donated non-perishable goods and over $400 worth of grocery store gift cards to help Niles area families enjoy a Thanksgiving meal this year. Non-perishable goods including stuffing, bread mix, mixed vegetables, sweet potatoes, and other Thanksgiving favorites were donated. All funds and goods were donated by library staff members. New this year, library staff members donated toiletries and 100 pairs of new socks to Niles Family Services.
“I’m so happy we are continuing this wonderful tradition again this year,” said Executive Director, Cyndi Rademacher. “It’s another way the library staff members are being of service to the community.”
The effort started in 2011 when the Library Director at the time heard that Niles Family Services needed more goods to help feed families in the community during the holidays.
