Retail therapy is our cure for the winter blues: shop AND help local families in need!

Beat the winter blues by helping others…we make it easy.  Once ‘n Again’s 20th Annual Food & Necessity Drive is January 11-29, 2022.  We started the food drive 20 years ago because I was told that donations to food pantries declined in the winter.  Many folks want to help, but just don’t know how–we give you an option.  Every January we will collect your food or necessity donation then pass it along for you!

We 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 we 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 29th. 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 11th and 29th.  We will give you a coupon that you can use once that day or one time before January 29th then we will pass along your donation to a local food pantry.

Thank you for helping us help others! We are open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-6pm.
