Union County Public Libraries
Join Together to Check Out Hunger in NJ
Help check out hunger this holiday season with donations to a Food Drive being sponsored by the Libraries of Union County Consortium (LUCC). From November 25 - December 13, the Springfield Free Public Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items to benefit the community food bank of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Springfield. Collection bins will be conveniently located in the library’s front lobby.
Even though experts say our economy is strong, many people in New Jersey have been left behind; low income families; struggling single parents; the elderly on a fixed income; the unemployed. To make this holiday season hunger free, simply visit the Springfield Free Public Library with a donation of non-perishable items. Groceries most urgently needed are canned meat and fish; canned soups and stews; peanut butter (in plastic jars); boxed pasta and rice; powdered milk; infant formula; canned vegetables and fruits.
The Springfield Free Public Library is located at 66 Mountain Avenue; the library’s main entrance and front lobby are actually situated on Hanna Street, across from the municipal parking lot.
