The Albert Lea Area School District and Dave Syverson Auto Care have teamed up once again this year to deliver meals to families in need during the holiday season. This is the fourth annual project that Dave Syverson has taken part in. The district and employees say they are proud to be able to help out their community.

“Helping our community is our focus,” said Travis Stortroen, Dave Syverson general manager. “We love to see our community really work together to make sure families in our area have a nice, warm meal for the holidays. This is our fourth year working together to make this happen and we are so pleased with the amount of hard work that goes into this from every single person that is involved.”

Dave Syverson employees will be assembling the take home meals from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday and distributing meals to the selected families alongside the district’s social workers from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday. Each meal will serve a family of six and includes: a ham, five pounds of potatoes, gravy, canned vegetables, stuffing, buns, pie and a case of water.

“It’s so rewarding to be able to help those in need,” Stortroen said. “Seeing the smile on the families’ faces really makes it all worth it. Our main goal at Dave Syverson is to give back to our community and this is just one of the many ways we do that.” Dave Syverson is proud to be able to partner with the Albert Lea Area School District’s hard working social workers.
