ALBERT LEA, MN — While donuts are a tasty treat, it’s being used in hopes of bringing much needed funds to the Salvation Army.
Donut Day Stations will be setup throughout the area as part of the Salvation Army’s “Donut Days”
The annual event increases visibility and raises much needed funds for the summer months.
While some take breaks for the summer, Salvation Army leaders say the money is much needed to meet the needs for folks in the community.
“The funds we collect during the donut days are just funds that we use to help our summer programs,” Captain Jim Brickson of the Albert Lea Salvation Army said. “Our meal sites don’t stop, our food pantry doesn’t stop.”
The Salvation Army in Albert Lea is hoping to raise 20,000 dollars to meet their budgetary needs.
Volunteers will be out from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. tomorrow.
