Saturday June 8th was a sunny day in Duluth, perfect for day two of the Duluth Superior Transportation Association’s 6th annual event “Fill-a-Truck, Feed a Family Food & Fund Drive”. BGS is a member of the DSTA, and BGS attorney Carole Clark Isakson volunteered at the event with Halvor Lines’ Chief Strategy Officer Carl Svendsen.
Two hours of greeting shoppers at the Miller Hill Super One Foods went by pleasantly as Carole and Carl collected food and cash donations for the local food bank. Carole’s husband Steve took a turn as well, joining in the effort. Other teams of volunteers worked over the three day event at 7 locations in and around the Duluth area. Overall the event raised approximately $10,000 for the local food bank (which equates to over 28,000 meals!), and over 5500 pounds of food was loaded into Halvor Lines trailers for delivery to the food shelf.
BGS is pleased to be a part of these and other efforts to improve Minnesota communities.
