Sundries for Sunday

While you're out selecting a card and gift for Mother's Day, consider meeting the basic needs of a less privileged mom.

Pick up a few extra sundry items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, or soap. If you're so inclined, add something extra and unexpected that a woman would appreciate.Then drop the items off at any public library location across Onondaga County in the designated barrels.

These items will be collected through May 10 on behalf of the Interreligious Food Consortium's "Mother's Day Non-Food Drive". The IRC will package and distribute the items to their clients.

Sundries are essential but rarely included in other types of collections, and are costly for a needy person to purchase. Mothers are sometimes overlooked in the various outreaches to children, yet they're often the primary caregivers. These distributions of sundries to needy mom's are appreciated, and make them feel special.
