SHF raising funds for food banks

MARQUETTE — For Giving Tuesday on Dec. 1, the Superior Health Foundation is raising money to provide funding for colleges across the region to restock their food banks.

The SHF Giving Tuesday fundraiser will collect donations for the U.P., Bay College, Finlandia University, Gogebic Community College, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Tech University and Northern Michigan University.

“We’re encouraging our friends and neighbors to consider a charitable gift to help us reach our goal of raising $9,000, with $1,500 going to each food bank,” said Jim LaJoie, executive director of the Superior Health Foundation, in a press release. “With COVID-19, we clearly recognize and empathize with the strain this has put on many, including the thousands of college students across the region. We want to do our part to ensure students have an adequate supply of healthy food during these unprecedented times.”
