From now until Friday, December 9, Chemeketa’s Library is sponsoring Food for Fines to benefit the Chemeketa Food Pantry.
This event invites students, staff and community members to exchange one food item for $1 in fines up to $10. This includes CCRLS fines, but not items that are lost or damaged
Simply bring your donations to the library to participate.
“Just before the holidays and cold weather, it is nice to have more food in the Chemeketa Pantry for those in need,” says Teresa Bell, co-organizer of the event.
Food for Fines is also held during winter and spring terms each year. Donations can be made to the Chemeketa Food Pantry at the Salem and Yamhill Valley campuses year-round.
