DRHS K.O.P.E. Feeds the Need

The K.O.P.E. group from the Deer River High School, with help from Advocates for Family Peace organized a Penny Drive in Deer River area prior to Christmas with 100% of the proceeds going to Second Harvest Food Bank for the Itasca Holiday Program.  K.O.P.E. stands for Kids Organizing for a Peaceful Environment.

Thanks to the Deer River businesses for allowing the Penny Drive buckets on their counters: Cenex, Holiday Station Store, Ott Drug, Jurvelin Hardware, The Outpost Bar and Grill, Shelley’s and Woodland Bank.  The total collected was $232.90.

Thanks so much to K.O.P.E. and the Deer River businesses who helped Feed the Need this holiday season.
