’Tis the season to begin thinking about CAER. Here are some of the Elk River food shelf’s current needs for donations. Juice, instant rice, boxed potatoes, Jell-O, pudding, mayonnaise, toothbrushes, deodorant, baby wipes and Kleenex. Thanksgiving meal needs include turkeys (turkey cards, full or partial, work too), boxed potatoes, pie crusts, muffin/dinner roll mixes, pickles, snack crackers, marshmallows and evaporated milk. Paper grocery bags and reusable bags also are needed.
