Paracord Bracelets for Operation Gratitude (Community Service Hour Opportunity)

Community Service Opportunity for Teens at the Tiverton Public Library

November is Warrior Care Month.  In honor of veterans and actively serving individuals, the Tiverton Public Library is providing a “grab-and-go” community service opportunity for students in Grades 7 through 12.

During the month of November, outside the Teen Room, craft kits will be made available for students to make Quick Release Paracord Bracelets for Operation Gratitude.  Each kit contains all the instructions and materials to make 3 Quick Release Paracord Bracelets.  Students will receive 1 hour of community service for every 3 bracelets that they make and return to the library.  Students may pick up 1 kit at a time but may take subsequent kits upon the return of each completed kit.

Materials will be provided throughout the month while supplies last.   Students in Grades 6 through 12 who do not wish to earn volunteer credit, are not yet eligible to accrue volunteer hours at school, or do not wish to donate the completed bracelets to Operation Gratitude may still take a craft kit to make and keep.

Please contact Rebecca Ott, Young Adult Librarian, for additional information or with any questions that you may have regarding this community service opportunity. rebeccao@tivertonlibrary.org or 401-625-6796 x4
