Sylvia Fitzsimmons (left), the circulation manager for ECM, presents a donation of $892 to Dave Rudolph, the director of the South Anoka Community Assistance Food Shelf & Thrift Store in Columbia Heights. In December, ECM provided a “voluntary subscription donation” drive where the company earmarked a percentage of the funds collected through subscriptions to be given back to area food shelves. Donations were made to nine food shelves in the Sun Newspaper communities. The donations were made during Minnesota FoodShare Month in March. In addition, the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches has allocated funds for each food shelf. The church council is planning to give each food shelf a percentage based on the funds/food they raised during the month of March.
