Community was generous during food drive

This week’s bouquets go to:

From the Michigan State Police Manistique Outpost:

Staff at the Michigan State Police Manistique Outpost collected canned goods and non-perishable items for local food pantries throughout Schoolcraft County from Oct. 14 through Oct. 25 for the 2019 Harvest Gathering Campaign.

Through the generosity of local businesses, over 4,000 cans of vegetables, along with other non-perishable items, were collected.

A total of 18,780 pounds were gathered.

Volunteers from Good Neighbor services picked up the items and delivered them to local food pantries and churches throughout Schoolcraft County.

The Michigan State Police Manistique Outpost would like to thank all of the participating businesses for their donations.

From Catherine Uhazie of Escanaba:
