As an additional perk, customers will receive one, two or three weeks free rental on all new rental agreements with one paid week. Those that bring in one canned food item will receive one free week, while those with two items receive two and three items receive three weeks free. Showing off the collection box are Ted Ivey, left, president of the pantry and Christopher Myshrall, store manager of Rent-A-Center. The Southern Aroostook Pantry services 800 families.
