During December, the UFV Library ran its traditional Food for Fines campaign. Library overdue fines were forgiven in exchange for donations of non-perishable food. Each donated food item was worth the equivalent of $2.00 towards overdue fines, to a maximum of $20.00 per person.
Although donations were down this year, our local food bank users still benefited. Between the campuses, 252 items were donated in exchange for the forgiving of $504 in fines. An additional 67 items were donated outright. Thanks to all who contributed and made the holiday season brighter for our local food bank users.
If you missed the opportunity to participate in Food for Fines, remember that local food banks are always looking for donations!
