KLC Financial recently participated in the Summer Harvest for Kids campaign that took place at the Mall of America on June 14th. Created because no Minnesota kid should go hungry over the summer months, 5 Eyewitness News teamed up with MATTER and The Food Group to bring this great event to life.
KLC joined more than 20 teams of volunteers who competed to see who could pack the most MATTERboxes (boxed lunches for kids) during the event. In addition, hundreds of volunteers showed their support by answering phones and processing donations. Many kids receive free or discounted meals during the school year, but they lose these essential meals during the summer. The Summer Harvest campaign helps ensure that thousands of children will have access to free meals over the summer break.
In total, the campaign raised over $280,000 – donations that will ensure more than 565,000 kids will be able to have lunch this summer.
KLC Financial believes in giving back to the community whenever possible, and we are so grateful that we were able to be a part of this important event!
