2019 is the year of ‘Pay it Forward’ at Alpha Media. Together with our ‘Power of Six’ sponsors, we will highlight an area non-profit each month. The goal is to showcase the people making a difference in this community…..and highlight the events and fundraising efforts of these organizations. In addition to our non-profit of the month, the Alpha Media Mankato team will be raising awareness and visibility for the events and organizations that define Mankato’s quality of life, spirit of giving and paying it forward. We’re able to do provide these community services because some of Mankato’s best and brightest stepped up and provided these appearances and non-profit showcases. We thank the generous support of the ‘Power of Six’ sponsors: Snell Motors, Eide Bailly, Re Max Dynamic Agents, Profinium, and McGowan Water Conditioning.
Each month ECHO Food Shelf serves over two thousand area households. ECHO provides emergency food services to families in Blue Earth County and North Mankato, distributing over one-hundred-fifty thousand pounds of food monthly. Since 2010 ECHO has been a client choice food shelf, which means clients choose their own grocery items instead of receiving a standard food package. Donations and volunteers are in constant need for ECHO to continue providing this important community resource. Make an online donation and find out about volunteer opportunities here.
