For the food shelf
Tops in the state, that's quite a feat. A food drive by the municipal liquor store in Two Harbors brought in more than 7,800 pounds of food in October, leading all stores that took part in the Minnesota Municipal Beverage Association's second annual food drive. Because it gathered more food than any other store, it picked up an extra $1,000 for area food shelves as well. Donated food will go toward shelves in Silver Bay and Two Harbors but much of it will be a part of a walk-in event at the American Legion basement Dec. 17. Details are pending on what has become a vital and popular service in a bad economy. Pictured here are Jon Chance, a sales manager for Miller Coors, a sponsor of the event; Carole Carlson from the Salvation Army; Brian Hachey from the MMBA; Vicki Wick, Two harbors liquor store manager; Anne Davies, liquor store employee; and, seated, Lori Carlson, a liquor store employee. The food drive ran Oct. 1-31. Actual food donations or cash were accepted, with each dollar counting as a pound of food.
