JACKSON CO., Or.- Jackson County libraries are starting their own drive. They hope to gather toys, books, and games for kids who have lost homes in the Almeda fire.
The drive aims to help kids rebuild their home libraries and provide distraction through games and toys.
Jackson County libraries hope to fill a need that may not be as immediate but is just as important.
“Instead of doing another drive for essential items, we decided to focus on what is essential for kids,” assistant director of public services Claudine Taillac said.
The drive will run through Sunday at Medford library, during normal library hours.
Families in need of donations can pick up items at the Medford, Ashland, Central Point, Jacksonville, or White City libraries starting Thursday, October 1st.
