Ruby’s Pantry is pleased to accept a $325 donation from Waschke Family GM Center in International Falls.
The local car dealer contributes to the community monthly, according to office manager Beth Gable.
“We prefer to keep the money local,” she noted.
“We like to focus on organizations who assist children and those who work to alleviate food insecurity,” Gable added.
The community giving program was started last fall by general manager Scott Eckman, and is based on monthly sales figures.
“The more we sell, the more we can help the community,” Eckman reasoned.
Ruby’s Pantry is a monthly food distribution program that helps keep consumable food out of landfills.
For a $20 (U.S.) cash donation, guests receive two baskets of food that can include meat, vegetables, bread, paper products, and more.
