We have good news and great news to share about the food shelf challenge!
The good news is Purple Carrot Market and First United Church collected 617 items total putting us well over the 500 items needed for the extra $500 in Thrivent money.
The great news is Thrivent doubled the money from $500 to $1,000. The Morrison County Food Shelf will get the 617 items collected plus $1,000 to help stock their shelves for our friends and neighbors.
Thank you, Pastor Tony, for partnering with us on this challenge.
