Giving Tree

Customer appreciation day in Belgrade at North American State Bank.

Banks in Brooten, Belgrade, and Elrosa have "Giving Tree" cards available for anyone wishing to purchase a gift for a local child from a family utilizing the B-B-E Food Shelf.

A wrapped gift worth $10-$15 needs to be returned to the bank with the original cards attached. Please do so by December 12th. Thanks for your generosity.

Basically, if you have a job this is something you should do. There are many unemployed parents out there, and it's only going to get worse as the recession takes hold across the U.S. Even those with jobs are struggling, as is obvious to anyone who punches a clock to pay the bills.

It truly is a jungle out there.
