St. Bernard offering option to donate food instead of pay fine

Posted by Trina Kinstler - email

ST. BERNARD, OH (FOX19) - The Saint Bernard Police Department is kicking off its inaugural "Food for Fines" program, in which citizens are given the option of donating food instead of paying assessed fines.

Beginning Thanksgiving Day until Christmas Day, violators of minor traffic offenses have the opportunity to "pay" their fine by dropping off 10 canned goods to the Saint Bernard Police Department and also paying the required state fee.

The canned goods will be donated to the Saint Bernard Charity benefiting families in need.

The police department will also accept canned goods from anyone wishing to donate.
