Fillmore & Houston Counties, MN – Three Semcac food shelves, located in Rushford, Preston and Caledonia, will receive a dollar-for-dollar match for donations given to these food shelves from December 1, 2014 – February 28, 2015. The Masonic Lodges in these areas will be doubling the impact of all monetary donations!

In 2013, these three food shelves distributed 232,142 lbs. of food; 868 households received assistance. A big thank you from Semcac to the Masonic Lodges in Fillmore and Houston Counties! This will help end hunger for many southeastern Minnesota families this winter season.

Please make checks payable to Semcac. Write the food shelf name that you wish to designate the donation for in the memo or note line of the check (ex: Rushford Food Shelf) or enclose a letter or note.
