Lake Elmo Food drive

Thanks to our LEB employees and customers, we donated just under $10,000 and over 600 pounds of food collected to Valley Outreach’s Food Shelf. The annual Food Drive Campaign which runs for the entire month of March was cut in half due to COVID-19 restrictions. Sincere thanks to all who donated, those who boxed and those who delivered
