Food for Fines nets $700 in donations


March 14, 2019

Whitman County Library reported 96 residents donated more than $700 in non-perishable food and toiletry items for the 19th annual Food for Fines drive. Donations came in throughout Whitman County with almost a third of those attached to the waiving of library fines. Food for Fines is held each February when area pantries report more people are struggling with high heat bills and difficulty feeding their hungry families. Pictured (left to right) are Librarian Rachelle Marshall; volunteers from the Colfax Food Bank Pantry, Gail McNeilly and Monica Meyerhofer, and Teen Services Librarian Nichole Kopp with some of the donations at the Colfax branch.
