STATESBORO —Georgia Southern University Parking and Transportation services will waive outstanding campus parking tickets for students, faculty and staff on the Statesboro campus, in exchange for food donations, for its Food for Fines events on Nov. 7.

Anyone with a current GS parking ticket can donate 10 nonperishable food items at the Parking and Transportation office in exchange for amnesty on the oldest fine on their account on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Statesboro Campus.

“We invite all of our students, faculty and staff, regardless of whether or not they have a parking citation, to donate during the event, and we look forward to being able to help provide assistance to as many in need as possible,”  Derrick Davis, director of Parking and Transportation services, said in a press release on Oct. 30. 

The items collected will be donated to on-campus food banks such as the Captain’s Cupboard food pantry, an emergency food program extended to GS students, faculty and staff on the Armstrong Campus.
