Food for Fines

Food For Fines
September 1 - 30

Help area families in need and eliminate library fines. The library will accept unexpired, never opened, nonperishable items for the Wauconda/Island Lake Food Pantry in lieu of overdue fines. Each item will equal $1 in fines. Donations can't be used toward replacement costs or collection fees.

The Food Pantry is in great need of:

  • Canned soups and chili
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Pasta and pasta sauce
  • Cake and brownie mixes
  • Tuna and canned chicken
  • Peanut butter and grape or strawberry jelly
  • Boxed items can also be donated: cereal, granola bars, scalloped potatoes, Hamburger Helper, Ramen noodles and Rice a Roni.
  • Toiletries are especially welcome, such as bar soap, dish soap, deodorant, shampoo, feminine products, diapers, toothbrushes and toothpaste.
