Backpacks for Homeless Youth donation drive

This holiday season, the Teen Room is partnering up with the Lithgow LGBT+ Teen Group and Mindful Queer Collective to collect items for Backpacks for Homeless Youth. There is an epidemic of homelessness among LGBT+ youth here in Maine, and these backpacks of supplies help homeless teens as they reach a housing solution, providing for basic survival needs and helping them stay in school. A full list of needed supplies can be found in the Teen Room and on our website as a downloadable PDF. Drop off your donations in the Teen Room donation basket or to Julie, the Teen Librarian. You can team up with a group to provide a complete backpack or you can donate whatever separate items you’d like. We will be accepting donations from November 15th through January 3rd.
