Library to Help Food Pantry

Have your heard about the Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry? Housed in the Plainfield Township building, this amazing operation is run entirely by volunteers. Mary Dickerson and her crew are devoted to helping those in need in our community. Suppport of this organization and its wonderful volunteers is needed now more than ever.

Once again, the library will be sponsoring a "Food for Fines" drive. For 2-4 non-perishable food items donated, up to $5 in fines will be forgiven from your Plainfield Library account. For 5 or more items, up to $10 will be forgiven. Please remember the food pantry cannot accept open or expired items.

The library staff will not be exchanging gifts within their departments this year, as they have before. Instead, they are pooling the money they would have spent on those gifts for a donation to the Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry.

Through these donations to the Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry, the library staff continues to demonstrate their dedication to the good of our community.
