Do you enjoy borrowing books from your local council library but have gotten so absorbed in the story that you have kept the book a wee bit past the return date? Well, here's a fun and thoughtful way to write off your overdue library fees and give back generously to those in need all at the same time.
Brisbane City Councils' 33 libraries across the city are again offering to waive outstanding library fees during December through their Food Appeal Effort.
The appeal runs from 1-31 December 2018. Remember to make sure that your donation is not perishable. You don't have to just have overdue fees to join in the giving. Members of the community are welcome to bring along a donation to give to this important cause.
This year's appeal will support Foodbank Queensland, an organisation that distributes food to charities and community organisations who assist those in need.
Foodbank is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. Last year, they provided enough food for over 67 million meals.
