Going on now! Until April 26th, you can donate to the LITS April 2024 Food Drive. Food can be dropped off in any of the bins at the library’s main entrances, or you can donate cash at the QR code below.

We are thrilled to announce the official start of the LITS April 2024 Food Drive. Our partnership in this endeavor reflects our commitment to lending a helping hand to those in need within our community.

The Backpack Nutrition Program aims to provide weekend sustenance to approximately 250 food-insecure Hartford school children throughout the school year.

Ways you can contribute:

1. Donate Food Items: We have collection points week at the main entrances of the library (Levels A and B) and one on the long walk entrance (Level 1), where you can drop off any of the following items:

Shopping List (individually-packed)

  • Juice boxes
  • Fruit cups
  • Apple sauce
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Popcorn
  • Nut-free granola bars
  • Cereal cups or bars
  • Oatmeal packets
  • Raisins
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Chef Boyardee products
  • Soups
  • Hot cocoa

2. Monetary Donations: For those who prefer to contribute financially, you can donate here:

Money donated will go towards purchasing items on the list that haven’t been donated, so there is no preference! Whatever you are able to provide will go to good use.

Your participation, big or small, will help us achieve our goal and bring smiles to the faces of these children. Let’s come together as a team and make a positive impact on our community.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness!
