Current Community Support
Virtual Food Drive: June 15 – July 31, 2020
Lake Area Bank’s core focus is to make a difference in people’s lives. During these times of uncertainty, we want to do our part to assist those most affected by COVID-19 and the increase in demand at food shelves in our local communities. According to a recent survey, food shelves are feeding nearly 60% more people during the pandemic than they were this time last year. Additionally, food banks are reporting an average of 38% of those being served are new to charitable food assistance – people finding themselves in this new unfortunate situation.
To assist our local food shelves, Lake Area Bank will be hosting a Virtual Food Drive supporting:
o Valley Outreach Food Shelf (Stillwater area)
o White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf (White Bear Lake area)
o Hugo Good Neighbors Food Shelf (Hugo area)
o Family Pathways Food Shelf (Forest Lake & Lindstrom areas)
o Ralph Reeder Food Shelf (Shoreview & Mounds View areas)
During our Virtual Food Drive, donors can use the above links to contribute monetarily to the food shelves in our location areas. Monetary donations are the most useful and efficient way to support food banks during this time. These donations give food banks the flexibility and funds to respond wherever the need is highest.
Our goal is to raise $1,000 for each of our participating food shelves. And BONUS – Lake Area Bank will match donations up to $1,000 per participating food shelf.
Thank you for supporting your local food shelf! We will hold this virtual food drive and match donations up to $1,000 per food shelf until July 31, 2020.
