The Food for Fines program at Beacon’s Howland Public Library is going on now through Sunday, December 30. This is your chance to do double-duty on clearing your late fines at the library, at the same time as donating to a food pantry.
While the program is called Food for Fines, the library encourages you to donate personal-care items too, like tampons, adult diapers (Depends), and even new socks. People do a lot of walking, and it’s hard to do in run-down socks! Conveniently, Rite Aid is located almost across the street, where you can find a lot of these items! Think baby formula, toothpaste, shampoo… anything you would want to help take care of yourself or your family.
