Food for Fines

Our annual food drive is September 1-30 of each year.  The best way to make a difference is to give. Just one can of soup can make a world of difference to someone that is in need. It’s why our motto is “We Can Make a Difference!”

As a bonus you can donate can goods and reduce your fines. $1.00 in fines will be waived for each food item donated up to $10.00 per account. 

Donate at following locations:

Why give?

Hunger in Alabama is a real issue. Many families simply need help putting food on the table. This campaign gives our patrons and the community an opportunity to support their local food banks, which helps feed those in need. It's a great way to make a difference in the community.
