Davenport Library Teams Up With High Schools For ‘Food for Fines’
If you have any overdue library fines with the Davenport Public Library, you can chip away at it while doing a good deed. The Davenport Public Library has teamed up with all four Davenport high schools and their Student Hunger Driver for Food for Fines.
Earlier this month, the Davenport Public Library began its Food for Fines program which is in partnership with the Student Hunger Drive which all four Davenport high schools are participating in. Through October 30, the Davenport Public Library is helping Davenport North, Davenport West, Davenport Central, and Assumption high schools with the Student Hunger Drive.
The Student Hunger Driver among the four Davenport high schools is helping fight hunger in the Davenport and Quad Cities community. The canned food items are being donated to the River Bend Food Bank.
The Food for Fines program allows you to get rid of those overdue fines at the Davenport Public Library. You can help the Student Hunger Drive and get rid of your debt by donating canned goods to the Davenport Public Library. When you bring in one canned good to any Davenport library branch, $1 of your overdue fines will be waived.
The Davenport Public Library has three branches:
When you come to donate your canned goods, the Davenport Public Library asks that you let library staff know which school you would like the donation to go to.
Even if you don't have overdue fines at the Davenport Public Library, you can still donate your canned goods at any branch. The Davenport Public Library asks that you make sure all donations are not expired, dented, and contain a label. Items cannot be used to clear any bills or collection fees.
The Student Hunger Drive to support the River Bend Food Bank and Feeding America is going on through November 4th. 16 local high schools are participating in the Student Hunger Drive. You can make a donation and support your local high school here.
