Campaign continues through Aug. 5

The Howland Public Library in Beacon is collecting new or gently used backpacks and carry-on luggage to be distributed to migrants and asylum seekers in Dutchess County.

The campaign, which continues through Aug. 5, is being organized by WeLead2Change in partnership with Reunite Migrant Families.

A drop box is available in the library.

Behind The Story

Articles attributed to "staff" are written by the editor or a senior editor. This is typically because they are brief items based on a single source, such as a press release, or there are multiple contributors, such as a collection of photos.
