Help the food bank with a simple vote! (06/23/2014)
From: Ben Johnson

Winona

We all have an excellent opportunity to support the fight against hunger in our area and it wonít cost you a dime. The Minnesota Twins are funding a $500,000 grant to be given to one of seven charitable organizations in the state of Minnesota and our regionís food bank has been selected as a finalist. The All-Star Fans Choose grant is part of the upcoming MLB All-Star weekend celebration and Channel One is the only organization to be selected outside of the Twin Cities. Since the winner will be chosen solely by fan voting, we really need Winonaís help! As a Winona resident, I have been involved with Channel One for several years and have seen a great impact on so many families. In Winona, we work in conjunction with partner food shelves such as Winona Volunteer Services, have on-site agencies, commodity food distribution and backpack programs for our children. Channel One services all of southeast Minnesota and has similar programs in 13 other counties. The funds received from this grant would go to our warehouse expansion project in Rochester, Minn. that is doubling our dry warehouse space, adding 50 percent more freezer and cooler capacity and adding a teaching kitchen and community classroom. So hereís what we need you do and it only takes a few seconds: Go to www.allstargame.com/fanschoose and simply vote for Channel One. We encourage you to vote every day and fan voting is open until July 10. Please join me in helping to make a difference in our community!
