BIRMINGHAM, MI (December 23, 2021) – The 2022 Woodward Dream Drive, a collaboration among four Woodward corridor libraries, is collecting new hooded sweatshirts and gym shoes to be given to children and youth at Oakland County Children’s Village.

Oakland County Children’s Village provides quality, innovative, comprehensive services to youth and families who come under the jurisdiction of the court and are deemed to be temporarily in need of out-of- home care, custody, and treatment. Children’s Village offers a safe, structured environment for youth that includes secure detention, residential treatment, shelter care services, as well as community-based services.

“We’re happy to partner with our neighboring libraries in collecting these necessary items for Children’s Village.  Our communities always rise to the occasion when help is needed and we know it will be the same this time around.” said Baldwin Public Library Director Rebekah Craft.
