Duluthians are being encouraged to bring a box or two of Cheerios to organizations like CHUM, Union Gospel Mission, and Salvation Army for distribution to families in need throughout the Northland.

Donations are being collected at the Duluth Labor Temple on London Road Wednesday through Friday this week between 8 AM and 4 PM, the donated food will be distributed to CHUM, Union Gospel Mission, and Salvation Army.
