Emily’s March MN FoodShare Fundraising Campaign Drive
March is MN FoodShare Fundraising Campaign Drive, Emily’s main 2012 Annual Food Shelf Fundraiser. All food items and monetary donations raised in the Emily area will stay in the area, to help provide food to families of Emily, Outing, Fifty Lakes, Little Pine, Ross Lake and Fairfield townships.
The Allen Shaw Feinstein Feinstein Foundation also sponsors another incentive program during this time. They will divide $1 million among nonprofit agencies throughout the U.S. to help fight hunger, and are using this offer to help raise funds during the months of March and April. The more food and money donations that are made and collected for the Emily Food Shelf, the larger the check will be coming back from the Feinstein Foundation.
The Food Shelf is open on the third Wednesday of each month from 9:30-11 a.m. at the Emily City Hall. People wishing to make a financial donation may make checks payable to the “Emily Food Shelf” and send them to 42145 Birchwood Drive, Emily, MN 56447. Questions concerning the Emily Food Shelf or fundraising projects may be directed to the site director, Nancy Moritz at (218) 763-3097.
