LITTLE FREE PANTRY: DONATIONS
With the cold weather upon us, we want to ensure that the goods in the pantry won't freeze. Some suggestions for this time of year include: dried, packaged food such as cup of soups, tea/hot chocolate/coffee, porridge, dried fruit and cakes and granola bars. Toiletries like toothbrushes, soap and deoderant are great, too. Socks and toques are other ways to fill the pantry, especially with the cold weather. Donations can be put direct in to the pantry 24/7 or droped-off inside the library during operating hours. And please remember, the pantry is acccessible to everyone, 24/7.

Every Wednesday, BUPL is the satellite office for The Women's Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County. If you or someone you know is in need of support services, please don't hesitate to contact BUPL or Jancy Brown direct at email Jancey Brown directly
