Thank you to everyone who pitched in for our Food for Fines efforts. While the total food count has not yet been tallied (non-fine related donations have not yet been counted), we were able to collect 1,974 food items aimed toward fines, totalling $2,857.30 in reduced fines for our patrons. With our final food run to come early next week, we are projecting donations of over 1 ton (2000 pounds!) of food. Great job, Westland! This program shows how doing the little things adds up to an enormous contribution for the community at large. Have a safe and happy New Year!
Note: the final delivery occurred today (1/6/11) and our grand total of donated food came to 2,800 pounds! Unbelievable job, Westland. We've set the mark to beat in coming years.
