The Food for Fines program at Beacon’s Howland Public Library is going on now through December 30th. This is your chance to do double-duty on clearing your late fines at the library, as well as donating to a food pantry.
While the program is called Food for Fines, the library is encouraging you to donate other toiletry items 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 for yourself.
