Collecting and Donating Gentley Used Children's Books
FRP has been working with school teachers and liaisons, food pantries, Head Start, and medical providers to get books safely to families during this time. As their office has been closed we have been unable to accept book donations and we're running low on our supply.
When are drop-offs?
Wednesday from 11am-2pm. This will be a no-contact drop-off. Specific instructions for how to donate can be found on their website.

Volunteer Needed- Help with Community Information and Resource Gathering
We’re looking for someone with the band width to do some brainstorming with Michaela Cortright, the director of our emergency financial assistance program on this question:
How can we continue to buy items in bulk (ex. laundry detergent, dish soap, and shampoo) for our clients, in this current environment where limits have been placed on purchases?
This opportunity involves internet research and calling stores to figure out what might be possible.
