Our Heroes' Tree 2013 and Hope for Heroes Donation Station at the Library

Our Library partners with the Indiana State Library to present Our Heroes' Tree, a national program founded to recognize and honor the sacrifices of our current military personnel, veterans, and deceased service members.  

Create an ornament honoring a service member and share it on our tree through the holidays. It is located in the Youth Service Department. As a way to honor our heroes' service, stop by and look at the photos and stories on these ornaments with your children.

The Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library is a drop-off station for Hope for Heroes: Winter Warm-Up for Homeless Veterans, a project of the ESA Kappa Theta Chapter of Zionsville. You can help make winter a little warmer for United States Veterans who are homeless or at-risk.

Donations will be accepted in the Youth Services Department from now through December 15. The items will be distributed to veterans through the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation.

Items Requested for male and female Veterans:
Jeans (size 40 and up)
Khaki pants (size 34-40)
Thermal Underwear

Personal Care Items:
Toothbrushes & Paste Deodorant
Shaving Supplies
Feminine Care Products

All items should be new.
