Do you have unpaid fines at Freeport Public Library? Each February you can pay them with non-perishable food items that will go local food pantries. You can contribute to the drive even if you don’t have fines. Read on for details.
“February is Food for Fines Month at Freeport Library. For every can of food or non-perishable food item brought in during the month of February, the library will “forgive” up to $1 in fines. All food collected stays in the community and will be divided between the Salvation Army and Freeport Area Church Cooperative (FACC).
Library users – and abusers – have a chance to do two good deeds at once: clear those pesky overdue fines from their records and help others less fortunate in the process. You don’t have to have library fines to donate to the drive. Please consider bringing in non-perishable, nutritious food, such as peanut butter, canned meats, chili, tuna, baby food, or baby formula . . .”
