December 2 to December 14, 2013

Donate non-perishable food items and the Highland Goodfellows will make sure your donation goes to a hungry family this holiday season.

Each item you bring in counts as $1 paid toward any late fees on your library record (There is no limit on the amount you can bring in, but these food items do not count toward lost or damaged materials fines).  

We can only accept nonperishable, unopened, unexpired food items.

Food for Fines is part of the annual Red Box food drive.

Donate gifts for homeless Veterans in the Southeast Michigan area.  Drop off any of the suggested donation items at the library, and AMVETS Post 2006 will distribute them to Veterans in need.  Say thank you to those who have served!
