WBLHS Food Drive for the White Bear Lake Area Food Shelf!

White Bear Lake High School Student Council is hosting their annual food drive (Dec. 7th - 11th) to help support your Local White Bear Lake Food Shelf. In past years the student council has worked tirelessly to engage the student body in order to collect the Food Shelves biggest drop of the year. As many of you likely know this year has looked different for our students, and unfortunately Covid would not allow for our most well known events such as Trick or Canning, Food Drive at the Football Games, in school Penny Wars, etc. With that said, how can you help? We are asking you, our local businesses to help us hit our goal of $10,000 raised for the White Bear Lake Food Shelf. They need it now more than ever! You can be a part of helping your neighbors not go without this holiday season! 
Where do you donate? 
Go to 
& donate to the Go Fund Me 
Send a check made out to the 
White Bear Lake Student Council to 
3551 McKnight Rd N. 
White Bear Lake, MN 
Please remember, anything helps and for every $1 donated the Food Shelf is able to purchase $8 in healthy groceries for your neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet!
