Help support end to poverty by buying a Valentine's Day cookie

'Cookies for a Cause' part of annual fundraising effort by community group, Luv1LuvAll

This week’s Star Herald features a story on Generations’ next steps in their mission to improve senior nutrition in Rock County.
Senior nutrition used to be a poverty topic for the community group, Luv1LuvAll.
Luv1LuvAll grew out of a Blandin Foundation initiative called “Leaders Partnering to End Poverty,” and senior nutrition was identified as one piece of the poverty puzzle.
Now, fully embraced by Generations’ mission, Luv1LuvAll is turning its attention to moving other poverty puzzle pieces to more solid footings within the community.
All of us can help the group reach their goals through Luv1LuvAll’s “Cookies for a Cause” fundraiser.
For $5 each, packaged, beautifully decorated Valentine’s Day sugar cookies ready for your favorite persons are for sale with the help of the Luverne Area Chamber. The Chamber has agreed to organize sales and is ready to take orders now through Saturday, Feb. 5.
Pickup will be between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11.
This is Luv1LuvAll’s only fundraising event, having switched from Christmastime poinsettia sales to Valentine’s Day cookies. The funds raised will be used to fill the organization’s various task forces gaps that grants and other funding sources won’t cover.
Dental care access, brain health, one-stop resource information, opioid use and housing are the current poverty areas the Luv1LuvAll group is working to provide solutions for in Rock County.
So, buy one cookie or 100 for Valentine’s Day and support the area’s anti-poverty efforts.
