Holiday helpers

Members from the St. Paul Police and Fire Departments volunteered to help students from Highwood Hills Elementary and Hazel Park Prep Academy to shop for free holiday meals for their families at the Heroes and Helpers Event on December 12.

Every holiday season, the District 2 Community Council partners with SunRay Target store, the White Bear Ave and Phalen Village Business Associations, the East Side Lions and several area businesses to give families from the East Side $75 for holiday meals.

40 pre-selected students in need from the community were chosen to participate this year. It’s the event’s fourth year, and was made possible with the help of 75 volunteers, as well as generous contributions from local businesses and organizations.
