Coverings for Kids
Donate masks for Campbell County students, teachers and school staff!
Coverings for Kids
Coverings for Kids is an initiative developed by First Lady Britainy Beshear and Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman to collect masks for Kentucky schools at no cost.
Donations help students, educators and staff be healthy in the classroom, while also easing the stress many are facing during these times. Donated mask can be used as a replacement should masks be forgotten or break during the school day.
The library is ready to help our schools and students by serving as a collection site for the Coverings for Kids campaign.
Drop off donations at any of our branches!
- Masks may be handmade or purchased
- Child and adult sizes accepted
We are accepting donations of store bought, single use masks but they must be in their original packaging. Reusable masks should be washable.
While the name of the campaign is Coverings for Kids, teachers and staff also need masks. We are asking that people donate masks in child and adult sizes so all will have masks that fit properly and provide the right protection. Adult-size masks also are appropriate for many students in middle and high schools.
Public elementary, middle and high schools in Campbell County will receive all donations. Donations will be accepted through the end of 2020.
If you would like to learn how to make homemade masks, you can find some great tutorials on the Governor’s Coverings for Kids web page.
Drop Your Drawers
You may be wondering if we are hosting our annual Drop Your Drawers campaign that normally takes place in November and December.
After careful consideration, we have decided to suspend the Drop Your Drawers campaign until 2021. We talked to the schools and discovered that they still have a large supply of socks and underwear left over from the 2019 Drop Your Drawers campaign. The schools simply did not hand out as many socks and underwear after transitioning to remote learning last spring.
In the meantime, we encourage you to donate to Coverings for Kids to help our schools meet this new need.
