Presents for Participants- Donations Accepted Nov. 16-Dec.9

The Marlboro Free Library is pleased to once again serve as a drop-off point for the Mental Health Association in Ulster County’s Presents for Participants Program (formerly Presents for Patients).  Donations will be distributed to individuals who are currently living in a MHA residence or involved in one of MHA’s community-based programs.  For many it will be the only gift they receive this year.  Please donate a new, unwrapped gift to the Library from November 16th until December 9th.

Gift suggestions include: “something to wear” (large and extra-large items preferred) and “something to do” (greeting cards, envelopes, postage stamps, games, puzzles, playing cards, model kits, books, soaps and deodorants). Candy, packaged cookies and chewing gum are also acceptable. Please, no used items. Gifts should be unwrapped so the Mental Health Association staff can address individual patient needs.  Glass containers should be well packaged to ensure against breakage.

Donations can be dropped off during the Library’s curbside or in-Library hours. Click here for our current hours.  Please visit for updates.
