Minneapolis chapter successfully attained its $50 donation goal to Second Harvest. A few bundles of beans and rice made its way to our last outing at Solera, but it was a frigid and valiant effort of the group to compound those consumables and make for a worthy contribution.
For you those of you unaware, when the temperature reaches -17 degrees, the heating bills rise. The bills put an extra monetary strain of those in need which results in winter being one of the neediest time for food.
Good on you- Minneapolis! We may be frozen, but our hearts are warm.
