There’s still time to donate to Food For Fines - 14 January 2015

The Salvation Army has collected 25 boxes brimming with donations from Wagga Wagga City Library’s Food For Fines campaign.

This is the 15th year the Library has ran Food For Fines, which helps restock the Salvation Army’s supplies after a busy Christmas period.

“Last year, two ute-loads of food were handed over to the Salvos and we’re on track to match that donation this year,” Acting Library Manager Christine Bolton said.

“Over the past 15 years, Food For Fines has helped so many people in our community and the support for this year’s donation drive has been amazing.

“The campaign is also an opportunity for Council to give back as it forfeits the money from the overdue fees.”

If you’ve got overdue loans at the Library, or are just feeling generous, then don’t worry – Food For Fines runs until January 31.

“There’s still plenty of time to donate your non-perishable food items at the Library,” Ms Bolton said.

“Some really helpful items are beans, cereals, biscuits, pasta and tinned meals.

“Every branch of Riverina Regional Library has been involved in Food For Fines since 2004, which means this great initiative is lending hand to those in need across the region.”

To donate to Food For Fines, simply bring your donations to the Library.
