Food Shelf & Concords Singers 24 Apr 12

New Ulm’s Concord Singers held their 80th anniversary concert over the weekend, and the admission to the show was a donation to the New Ulm Area Emergency Food Shelf. The concert brought in a total of 304 pounds of food and $471 for the food shelf, and the Concord Singers were matching the donations up to $500. Food Shelf Spokesperson Brad Kirk says the donations are especially helpful with March having been the second busiest month ever for the food shelf. Kirk says that April started off extremely busy for the food shelf as well, with 58 families being served on the first distribution day of the month, the busiest single day ever for the New Ulm Area Food Shelf. Items currently needed include: Jell-O Pudding, cream of chicken soup, juice, Hamburger Helper and boxed potatoes.
