April 12, 2023
The Three Forks Community Library is taking part in a fundraiser for the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office Youth and Family Outreach Program (YFOP).
With April being Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Library is one of several places in Gallatin County with yard signs available in coordination with the YFOP and Gallatin County CASA/GAL.
According to Librarian Fawn Venzor, the signs can be purchased at the library for $20 through cash, check, or PayPal and Venmo through the QR code on the sign. Pinwheels can also be purchased for $5 at the library through cash or check. The YFOP will use the funds raised through the sign campaign for youth suicide and sexual abuse prevention programming and the expansion of the Shop with a Cop program.
Pinwheels were also placed at the library to promote Child Abuse Prevention Month.
"We planted pinwheels to show we are participating and supporting this stand," Venzor said.
