By on

Last week, we talked a little about the Help for the Homeless Hygiene Drive.  To date, nearly 3 million dollars of products have been donated through this event to help those less fortunate right here in Wisconsin.  Food Share (formerly Food Stamps,) can only be used to buy food, but many people are also in need of other basic necessities like soap, toothpaste, shampoo, etc. that a lot of us take for granted.  Some of the most needed items include:

  • Cleaning supplies: laundry and dish soap, trash bags
  • Feminine care items
  • Baby care: Diapers, wipes, diaper rash ointment
  • Hair care: Shampoo and conditioner
  • Dental care: Soft toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss
  • Miscellaneous: Bar/soft soap, shower gel, deodorant, disposable razors, lotion, lip balm, face wash
  • Paper goods: paper towel, bathroom and facial tissue
  • First aid: Band-Aids, antacids, anti-diarrheal meds, antibiotic ointments, sunscreen

These donations will help those in need in the communities where they are donated.  If you’re interested in donating, please drop off any donations at the Black Creek Village Library before March 10th.

The next meeting of the Black Creek Library Page Turners is Wednesday, March 27th at 1 pm.  This month, we’re reading the classic, The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, about a turn-of-the-century scientist who builds a time machine that takes him on a perilous journey into the far distant future.  Copies of The Time Machine are available at the circulation desk for checkout.  If you’re unable to join us in person for the discussion, you can still participate online in our Facebook discussion:
