DLA Gives Back

It’s no secret to any of us that libraries are at the very heart of their communities, helping in large and small ways on a daily basis.  And DLA wants to help in your communities alongside you!

DLA is trying a new volunteer initiative this year called DLA Gives Back.  DLA will be working with the Food Bank of Delaware to help pack food boxes in two of their warehouses.  On March 10th from 1pm-3pm at the Newark location, and March 24th from 10am–12pm at the Milford location.  See the attached flyer below for more information.

Please email DLA president, Michelle Hughes, directly to reserve your spot!  Her email is michelle.hughes@lib.de.us.  Be sure to let Michelle know which location you’re signing up for and your phone number (in case of last minute instructions or cancellations the day of).  Volunteers need to be 16 years of age, and be prepared to be on their feet for 2 hours with the ability to bend and lift boxes up to 20lbs.
