Letter: Thanks for support for food drive

Published 9:38 am Wednesday, March 8, 2017

On Saturday night, we had a benefit for the Salvation Army food shelf. We wanted to write and thank everyone. First of all, to all the people of Albert Lea and surrounding area who donated, thank you. We can be proud of our community for always being involved and willing to donate to good causes. Without your support this wouldn’t happen. Thanks to the Albert Lea Eagles Club for hosting the benefit. Ventura Foods of Albert Lea gave a very generous donation of food items. Thanks to them. We had three bands that played that night, High Street Band, Flashback and the Wicked Renegades. They donated their time and talent, so thanks to all of them. Also thanks to Power 96, KATE-KCPI and the Albert Lea Tribune for all the advertising. The total amount collected was 704 pounds of food and $382. This goes a long way in helping their food shelf. March is food shelf month so it goes that much farther. Thank you again, everyone, we hope to do it again next year.
