South Country Health Alliance staff partnered with Kanabec County Family Services and Coborn’s in Mora to give 17 Kanabec County families food and supplies for their Thanksgiving meals.
South Country staff raised more than $700 for “Thanksgiving in a Bag” to purchase groceries and other items, which Coborn’s offered at a discounted rate.
Each reusable grocery bag held food and ingredients needed to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal, along with certificates to redeem at Coborn’s for a frozen turkey and fresh pumpkin pie. Bags also included a roasting pan and recipe cards for green bean casserole and proper turkey preparation.
“We are all especially thankful at South Country this year and wanted to share our gratitude with others,” said Cea Grass, director of communications and customer relations. “Our staff here are very pleased to make a connection with families in Kanabec County this holiday season.”
Families were selected by staff at Kanabec County Family Services based on need. The bags were available for pickup at the Kanabec County Public Service Building on Monday, Nov. 23.
