GRAND MARAIS—As you may know, the local food shelf is in need. It’s that time of the year when budgeting for your family can be difficult, with additional costs for fuel, winter clothing and gear, holiday expenses and more. So it’s important that the community pulls together and pitches in to help those who need assistance. In an effort to do so, The Senior Center will be hosting a Food Drive starting October 22 and running until November 20. As an incentive to get people to donate, there will be a raffle. With each food or money donation, you will earn a ticket and the chance to win a variety of prizes.
Jes Rodne, programs and services coordinator at the Cook County Senior Center, is looking for prizes to be donated by local stores, hotels, restaurants, hair salons, gas stations, churches, grocery stores, etc. To make donations or get more information, contact Rodne at 218-387-2660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
