Priest Lake Food Bank
THE PRIEST LAKE FOOD BANK AND THRIFT SHOPPE
AT THE (SELL IT OUT OF YOUR) TRUNK SALE
The Coolin Civic Organization is holding its annual trunk sale on August 31st
(the Saturday of Labor Day weekend).
The trunk sale invites people with automobiles/pickup trucks/tables, to come to the Coolin Community Hall on that date to sell items out or their car trunks, pickup beds or tables at no cost to the sellers.
The Priest Lake Food Bank (PLFB) and the Thrift Shoppe will be on hand to receive food and clothing.
If you are about to close your cabin for the season, and you have packaged or canned food that will not survive the winter, the PLFB will gladly accept your food donations.
If you have gently-used clothing, linens (sheets and towels) or small kitchen items that need new owners, donate these items to the Thrift Shoppe at the trunk sale.
So please come to the trunk sale, sell some stuff, and donate food and clothing to our community. Thank you for your support.
PRIEST LAKE FOOD BANK FUNDRAISING RAFFLE
The Priest Lake Food Bank’s (PLFB) third annual fundraising raffle is well underway.
The drawing for the five great prizes will be held in late September.
Winning ticket holders need not be present at the drawing to receive their prize.
Raffle tickets are $5.00 each.
Tickets are available at Ardy’s Cafe in Coolin, or on the west side of the lake at the Nordman Resort and Lodge, Hot Shot’s Espresso, Barrel 57, Millie's - and the Priest Lake Brewing Company.
Some PLFB volunteers will be selling raffle tickets door-to-door.
The prizes include
Three cash prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250 each.
The two other prizes are a $50 gift certificate at the Ranch Club in Priest River or
a $25 gift card from Mitchell’s Harvest Foods.
This is a significant event for the food bank since the revenue from tickets sold accounts for about 80 percent of all funds raised each year.
Here is additional information to consider: Over 92 percent of all funds raised are spent directly on feeding 40 to 60 local families whose food budgets are really stretched. (Families and individuals receiving USDA food from the PLFB must meet eligibility requirements.)
So buy a raffle ticket; or two tickets, or maybe more!
This is your opportunity to help local families, and you have a chance to win some extra cash or gift certificates.
