Donate Clothes -- and Overdue Fines -- to Todd's Angels!

If you owe any library late fees, consider paying your fines in cash and in person at our front desk by Sunday, December 9.  All fees collected between November 26 and December 9 will be used to purchase items to donate to Todd’s Angels.  Founded by Brooke Mazzone ’19, Todd’s Angels is a non-profit organization—and a current SDLC—that provides clothing to local hospitals for children born into the foster care system.
Todd’s Angels also has a donation box in the library’s front lobby for general campus use.  The organization accepts any new-with-tags baby clothes and socks in premie, newborn, 3-month, and 6-month sizes.  One-piece “Sleep n’ Play” outfits are preferred.
