Letters: Two Harbors food shelf thanks community

Two Harbors Area Food Shelf distributed over 121,600 pounds of food to 5,157 neighbors experiencing food crisis in 2016. As a nonprofit charitable business, our primary funding sources are grants and foundation awards, corporate and local organizations, and individual or memorial donations. An impressive 75 percent of our annual funds are raised right here, locally, in the Two Harbors area.

The most heartfelt "Thank You" to an amazing community, who continue to reach out in support. You make Two Harbors a stronger, healthier place for each one of us to work, play and live.
