Annual Foof Shelf Benefit
There's no charge to see our lights. You're welcome to come as often as you
want and stay as long as you want. That's the whole idea.
Clearwater Lights is not connected in any way to the the Clearwater/Clear
Lake Foodshelf. Nor are we asking for anyone to help share the cost of
lighting our lights. We put Christmas lights out because we enjoy looking at
them and because it's a part of how we celebrate the season and our beliefs.
One such belief is helping others.
The volunteers at the Clearwater/Clear Lake Food Shelf do this admirably, and
we're proud to help them do what they do. Every penny that's donated stays
right here in the community - not some national headquarters somewhere.
What's better than 100% going for the intended purpose?
However, it's winter in Minnesota and we have no provisions for collecting
actual food items, so please don't leave any. What we're collecting is more
like jingle bells. Yeah, that's a good description... jingle bells in the form of
cash, pre-paid grocery cards, or checks.
As stated before, there's no charge to see our lights. You're welcome to
come as often as you want and stay as long as you want. But if what you see
inspires you, well, that's what jingle bells are for this time of year, isn't it?
We provide a lock-box on site, and every dollar that's donated goes directly to
the food shelf. Then the food shelf staff gets to perform their Holiday magic
and turn that into more than just a dollar's worth of food!
If your donation is in the form of check, be sure to make it payable to:
Clearwater Food Shelf.
You can also mail contributions directly to:
