Ocean County Library’s Reading Club Toiletry Drive

Sparks Reading Club Drive Will Help Children in Need

By Ocean County Library February 24, 2022

Members of the Ocean County Library’s Department of Homebound and Volunteer Services ask for your help as they collect donated toiletry items for Ocean County children in need, March 1 through March 31.

The Library is teaming up with county organizations that distribute items to children in need. Collection centers will be in theToms River, Manchester, Jackson, Point Pleasant Borough, Lacey and Brick Branches.

The most-needed items include unopened toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, hand sanitizer, deodorants, shampoo, hair conditioner, hair brushes, combs, socks, and feminine hygiene products.

No donation is too small, and each makes a big difference in a child’s life
