One of our favorite pin projects was for volunteers or Friends of the Waukegan Public Library. Every year, these wonderful people donate their time, money and books to help create funding for special events held by the library including book sales, programs that help children get more involved with reading, concerts and more. The book sales include deals on all kinds of books, DVD’s, CD’s and more. Those interested in assisting the efforts of the not-for-profit can donate their time or send books that are in good condition to be sold at the event.
The library wanted to provide a gift to their volunteers, showing their appreciation to these amazing people who make so many things happen with minimal time and resources. It truly is a team effort for these events to happen and we are proud to help the library show their appreciation to their volunteers. They selected the pewter star lapel pin and customized the gift by having a custom card with their information and special message. Each volunteer was presented with a pin, acknowledging the effort and support they’ve put towards the Waukegan Public Library.
With over 130 members, the library always welcomes more volunteers. Members receive a free newsletter, an invitation to the annual meeting, advanced notice for special events and more. If you are interested in learning more about supporting the library, please feel free to visit their site.
Lapel Pin Planet takes pride in the fact that organizations like this utilize our talents to create handcrafted, custom pins that will help display pride and appreciation to people who dedicate their time and money to these great causes. We hope that each recipient of the star pins will cherish them for years.
