Earth Day is coming and the Kids’ First Initiative needs your help! An Earth Day seed planting event is in the making and the Children’s Room is in need of gardening supplies. Donations needed include potting soil, plastic containers, trowels/small shovels, and seeds for easy-to-grow vegetables and herbs that are appropriate for early season planting. Donations may be brought to the staff office during normal business hours, or to Jaclyn in the Children’s Room from 3-8pm on Tuesdays and 3-5pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Stay tuned for upcoming details about this fun event, and thank you in advance for your generous donations!
