4th Annual Food Shelf Funding Drive program begins

On January 1, 2015, the Buffalo area’s Masonic lodge, Nelson Lodge No. 135 Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, began its 4thAnnual Food Shelf Funding Drive program for the year.  As in years past, they are focusing their efforts on the Buffalo and Maple Lake/Annandale area food shelves. This year’s drive will end on February 28.
 What makes the Mason’s Food Shelf drive different from other organizations’ drives is that their supporting charitable benefactor, Minnesota Masonic Charities, provides a matching grant.  For every dollar that Nelson Masonic Lodge No. 135 can raise, Minnesota Masonic Charities will match the contribution up to a maximum of $25,000. That is Twenty Five Thousand Dollars, for a combined total of $50,000.  Since they support two communities, both have a $50,000 limit for a total donation of $100,000 donation.
