Donation to CLC Veterans Center Food Shelf
The Brainerd Lions and Brainerd Community Action donated a $1,000 check to the CLC Veterans Center food shelf. The veterans food shelf is open year-round to serve veterans, currently serving service members and their dependents. Donations from community resources fill freezers with meals, soups, pizza and snacks. Donations are also received in the form of canned and dry items.
Veteran students may use the Center, eat snacks and receive a hot meal. It is an extra incentive to help make the veteran students college experience a little better.
Veteran students can take freezer items and some food shelf items home to share with their families.
Approximately 300 students are currently being served through the Veterans Center.
