The Shalom Shop has given $12,000 for Holiday Food Baskets for Isanti County residents.
Jody Dobe, President of the Shalom Board presented a $6,000 check to Kory Erickson, representing the Isanti County Salvation Army and a $6,000 check to Tom Pagel, representing Isanti Lions Christmas Project, for each organization’s food baskets distributed during the holidays to Isanti County residents in need of food.
Shalom’s Mission is to assist individuals and families in Isanti County needing short-term assistance in meeting their food, shelter and clothing needs, by reselling donated gently used items to the general public at a reasonable price.
In 2011, Shalom was able to donate over $127,000 to organizations in the area that help people meet their basic needs.
With the continued support of those donating gently used merchandise, volunteers willing to give their time, and shoppers who frequent our store, Shalom expects to continue supporting organizations helping others.
