CD4 GOP Holiday Charity Drive


The Holiday Charity Drive, a local community outreach event that began in 2013, sponsored by Minnesota’s 4th Congressional District Republicans, continues this year, collecting shelf stable food for families with food insecurities.

Stock up while you’re at the grocery store and drop off donations to one of the handy local drop locations – including Meister’s Bar & Grill at the Shoreview Mall near Highway 96 & Lexington in HD 42A and others in neighboring districts – from Friday, November 21st, thru Saturday, December 6th. Just like last year, all donated items will be picked up by Santa with the assistance of his elves.  Check CD4 GOP Holiday Charity Drive for more details.
