The Friends of the Hunterdon County Library (FOHCL) are requesting donations to ‘Return the Support 2021’ to Hunterdon County small businesses.
Every dollar raised by this fundraiser will be used to purchase gift cards from local Hunterdon County businesses to ’Return the Support’ for their past support of our annual Tricky Tray.
These gift cards will be offered as prizes in FOHCL’s 2021 Tricky Tray. Historically, these gift card prizes have been donated by the merchant. Since many of these small businesses continue to be negatively impacted by the Pandemic, requesting a 2021 gift card contribution does not seem prudent.
The pandemic continues to impact everyone. FOHCL's Annual Book Sale, our largest fundraiser, has been cancelled (again) for 2021. The importance of a successful Tricky Tray fundraiser is more important than ever to support our mission of supporting the Hunterdon County Library programs, which have experienced a significant increase in demand for their services, especially e-books and audio books.
Thank you to everyone who donated to our 2020 Return the Support campaign. That effort raised over $2000 which was used to purchase gift cards from over 40 Hunterdon County businesses. Those gift cards, along with other donated items, were offered as prizes in our 2020 Tricky Tray fundraiser. The 2020 Tricky Tray raised over $6000.00 which supports programs offered by the Hunterdon County Library. The feedback received in 2020 was very positive from both supporters and local businesses. Please consider donating in 2021 and Returning the Support!
FOHCL needs your support to make this happen! By contributing to this fund appeal, you will be giving directly to our local businesses and also supporting the Friends of the Hunterdon County Library.
Thank you for your consideration.
