From October 16 to October 22 the Timmins Public Library will be accepting non-perishable food donations at the Main Library and the C.M. Shields Centennial Library as payment for overdue fines. Each non-perishable food item will be worth $1.00 in overdue fines. Donations will be sent to the Timmins Food Bank and the South Porcupine Food Bank.
Food must be canned, sealed and packaged with its original packaging and labels. Food cannot be expired or have an expiry date within the next four months.
No fines? We’ll accept food items from anyone who would like to participate!
