Echo Park Food Drive

echo_park_drive_2013One of our Adopt Your Neighborhood School partners, Echo Park Elementary, recently had a food drive to benefit Mission Outpost.

Here’s a thank you from the Student Council:

Thank you to our Echo Park students, families and staff who helped collect 2,150.5 pounds of food for our local food shelf! That is over a ton of food that was donated to help those in our Echo Park community over the summer months with meals. The local food shelf is run through Salvation Army located in the Prince of Peace building across from Fairview Ridges Hospital.

If your family, a relative, or a neighbor is in need of food assistance, please contact the Salvation Army located at Prince of Peace at 13901 Fairview Drive, Burnsville, MN. The contact number for days and hours to use this outreach is 952-898-2736.

On behalf of Mission Outpost, thanks for your generosity Echo Park.
