The Verona Public Library usually celebrates National Library Week in the spring by forgiving fines on overdue books and library materials. Now, it’s going one better for the Junior Woman’s Club of Verona‘s Verona Fights Hunger Week.
For every one non-perishable food item you bring to the library, you can subtract $1 from the library fines you owe. Donated items will benefit the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair and the Holy Spirit Food Pantry in Verona. Verona Fights Hunger week is a town-wide food drive that will run through Saturday, October 14.
Don’t owe any library fines? There are plenty of other ways to participate in Verona Fights Hunger Week. Throughout the week, King’s Supermarket will have pre-filled grocery bags on hand, allowing customers to make “grab and go” donations. This flyer has a shopping list and a coupon good at King’s through October 14.
On Tuesday, October 10 you can Dine out for Hunger at the Verona Inn at dinner to benefit Verona Fights Hunger Week. The same is true for dinner at at Frank Anthony’s on Wednesday and take-out dinners from Lakeside Deli on Thursday.
Other drop off locations for donations include Kings Food Market, Verona Community Center, Verona Town Hall, Verona Public Library, Our Lady of the Lake (Church and School), Platinum Fitness, The Towne Scoop, Hardbodyz Fitness, and Jazzercise Verona.
