Food, necessity drive underway

Once ‘n Again’s 21st Annual Food & Necessity Drive runs through Jan. 31.

The food drive started 21 years ago because of donations to food pantries declining in the winter. Every January, the business will collect your food or necessity donation then pass it along for you.

They offer a coupon for 20% off your in-store purchase for the day for each person that donates (limit 1 coupon per household per donation). The discount is absorbed by Once ‘n Again…not the consignor. At Once ‘n Again they want to collect useful and thoughtful items for those in need. In order to receive a discount coupon bring an unopened/unexpired item from this list:

  • Beef stew, chili, any meal in a can, or peanut butter

  • Soup (any flavor), meat in a can (any kind)

  • Wrapped bath tissue, laundry soap, shampoo, body wash, 3 pack bar soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, or deodorant

Items not listed here will be accepted and passed along to the local food pantries but will not receive a discount coupon. White tagged items are excluded from the discount. The coupon may be used once and will expire on January 31. This coupon may not be combined with other discounts or offers. This coupon cannot be used for online purchases.

Donations brought to the Fairbury Once ‘n Again will go to the Fairbury Community Food Pantry. Donations brought to the Pontiac Once ‘n Again will go to the Livingston County Community Food Pantry.

All you have to do is bring your donation between the dates of January 3rd and 31st and they will give you a coupon that you can use once that day or one time before January 31st then they will pass along your donation to a local food pantry.

Thank you for helping us help others! Once ‘n Again is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-6pm.
