Rockford Masons to match donations to Delano food shelf

Feb. 22 is deadline to donate

The Rockford Masonic Lodge in coordination with Minnesota Masonic Charities will match any funds donated to the Delano Helping Hands Food Shelf. For every $1 donated by Feb. 22, Helping Hands will receive $2.

“The Rockford Masonic Lodge has been part of the Crow River community since 1857. We recognize that the need to serve our community and support our local food shelf has never been greater, which has prompted us to take action with this initiative,” said Ben Dye, president of Rockford Masonic Lodge.

“This is the second year we have been included in this wonderful matching grant,” said Sandy Pikus and Jeanie Pilarski,

co-chairs of Delano Helping Hands. “It was very successful last year for us. We do appreciate the support from Rockford Masonic Lodge. This fund raiser would not be possible without the continued support of our community.”

Send donations to Delano Helping Hands Food Shelf, P.O. Box 122, Delano, MN 55328 by Feb. 22. Make checks payable to Rockford Masonic Lodge. All funds will be donated to the Helping Hands Food Shelf. All donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
