VICTORVILLE, Calif. – You can make a difference by participating in the “Food for Fines” community food drive hosted by the City of Victorville and the Friends of the Victorville Library. Now and through Friday, Nov. 30, patrons who owe fines to the Victorville City Library will have one late fee waived if they bring non-perishable food items to the library.
In the spirit of the holidays, many libraries across the country hold such programs during this time of year to promote good will and to serve an important need in the community. “This is a wonderful opportunity to support those who are struggling to put food on the table and to get library accounts back in good standing before the close of the 2018 year,” said Victorville City Librarian, George Carter.
Food donations must be in store-sealed cans, boxes, or plastic containers that include the expiration date. Glass containers, perishable food, opened containers, homemade or home-canned items will not be accepted.
Donations will be given to the Victor Valley Rescue Mission. “Whether or not you owe fines, join us for this successful program and help make a difference in our City,” Carter added.
For more information about the “Food for Fines” program call the Victorville City Library at (760) 245-4222. The Victorville Library, located at 15011 Circle Dr., is open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
