AMNESTY! Once a year the good folks at the Montgomery City - County Public Libraries forgive those of us who forget to return our books on time. From April 11 to May 21 they will accept donated food in lieu of an overdue book fine! The exchange rate is one 13 ounce can of food for one overdue book.
While you should always return your library books on time - please forgive us if we hope you have a shelf-full of overdue books!
For the past 24 years the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) have conducted what is now the nation’s largest one-day food drive on the second Saturday in May. This year the “Stamp Out Hunger” Food Drive will be conducted on May 14th.
Residents will be asked to make non-perishable food donations May 14th, which letter carriers will collect as they deliver mail along their postal routes. The food will then be taken to local food banks. “Stamp Out Hunger” has collected more than 1.4 billion pounds of food since the national drive began. Last year the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive gathered 70.6 million pounds of food nationally, marking the 12th year in-a-row the NALC drive has surpassed 70 million pounds of food collected.
The Alabama State Bar, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange and the Alabama Food Bank Association have joined together to help end child hunger with the launch of the Alabama Legal Food Frenzyset for April 25 – May 6, 2016.
Law firms across the state will compete to see who can raise the most food and funds for the eight regional food banks in Alabama.
