wwny Library invites you to drop your drawers

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It's an invitation to drop your drawers.

Flower Memorial Library in Watertown is taking donations of new underwear, diapers, and wet wipes for the first-ever Drop Your Drawers campaign.

The library will donate items to area elementary schools and to the North County Family Health Center.

The goal is to help students get back to their day faster if an accident happens.

"Anybody who's ever had kids or has been a kid themselves, you know that accidents happen. And, sometimes it takes a while for parents to get off of work, get back to school, get them the supplies they need to be able to continue on with their school day. So, we're hoping to help with that process and help with that need," said Ashley Pickett, children's librarian.

The hope is to get 500 donations.

The campaign lasts until the end of October.
