Perham Knights of Columbus donate $500 to community pantry

John Leikness, Executive Director of The Bridge Community Pantry receives a $500 donation from Ken Guck of the Knights of Columbus.

The Perham Area Knights of Columbus Council 1773 recently donated $500 to The Bridge Community Panty in Perham.

The organization, consisting of members from St Henry's in Perham, St. Lawrence at Rush Lake, Sacred Heart in Dent and Holy Cross in Butler, donate to The Bridge Pantry as part of their Food for Families program. The Supreme Council will refund $100 for every $500 donated, or for every 1,000 pounds of food that a council contributes to a parish food pantry, community food bank or soup kitchen — up to a maximum of $500 per council per year.

Donations can be dropped off at the northwest entrance of St Henry's Church in Perham.
