Free Books, Free Sunscreen And Food Collection Drive In Carroll Park Today


Today, swing on by Carroll Park today to contribute to the food drive for City Harvest, to pick up a sample of free sunscreen or to pick up or drop off a book. 

Fun In The Sun Today: 
free sunscreen, free books, and food collection drive! 
Thurs., June 14, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 
front of Robert Acito Park House

Carroll Park will welcome volunteers participating in the Nielsen Global Impact Day on Thursday, when teams of employees will descend on the park in partnership with the Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation, distributing free sunscreen samples, skin cancer prevention info, plus activities and demos to help you Live SunSmart!

Friends of Carroll Park will also be on hand all day with our Book Swap cart, distributing info on upcoming park events, and collecting non-perishables for City Harvest's annual Feed the Kids food drive!
We're wrapping up the initiative this weekend, and we'd love to make it our largest collection yet, so bring your donated non-perishables by from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.!

The items most needed are:
- canned fruit
- canned vegetables
- peanut butter (plastic jars)
- macaroni and cheese (packaged)
- hot and cold cereal (packaged, family-sized)

Please note that City Harvest cannot accept glass containers,  
items past their "best by" date, homemade products, or dented cans.
