ORONO, Maine (WABI) - The UMaine bookstore is offering a discount to anyone willing to donate food items this holiday season.

Three food items donated at the bookstore will get you 30% off one regular priced item.

They are collecting donations until December 30th.

Black Bear Exchange, an on campus food pantry open to students, staff, faculty and their immediate families, will receive the donations.

The idea for the food drive was a result of the difficult year many are having.

”There’s just such a need out there, and it’s even hyped up more with the pandemic, so I think us partnering with them is huge this holiday season, and I think that it’s very, very important, even more so today than a year ago,” said Ranee Dow, Manager of Bear Necessities.

There‘s another incentive to visit the bookstore and make a food donation.

Folks who make a purchase in store or online through December 18th will be entered into the “Shop to Win“ holiday prize drawings.

Online purchases can be made on the bookstore website 24/7 and include free shipping.
