We’re halfway through!
Wanna help yourself and your community at the same time?
In keeping with the season of giving, the Edith B. Siegrist Public Library is pleased to share its intention to offer amnesty to patrons owing fines throughout the month of December, in exchange for donations of food pantry items.
The “Forgiving for Giving” campaign will collect donations of non-perishable items that will then be distributed by the Vermillion Food Pantry during the holidays. Patrons who have accumulated overdue fees, with the exception of replacement fees, will be able to have those fines waived in exchange for donations of much-needed items, such as canned meats, canned or packaged soups, canned beans, dried pastas and grains, dried fruits, canned vegetables, etc. A more detailed list can be found by visiting vermillionfoodpantry.org/how-to-help/wish-list.
