Scholarship fund’s retail campaign begins Monday

FLACSF asks for help, $1 at a time


The Forest Lake Area Community Scholarship Foundation’s annual retail fundraiser begins Monday, April 1 and hopes to raise scholarship monies one dollar at a time. Participating retail businesses will ask customers to contribute $1 at checkout for the FLACSF. Donors will write their name or a message on a placard and have it displayed at the business.

Last year the effort funded three additional scholarships for FLACSF which were distributed to Forest Lake area students.

This year’s fundraiser runs through April 30. Participating businesses at this time include: Big Apple Bagel, Forest Lake Floral, NAPA Auto Parts, Stewie’s Subs, Ace Hardware, Thrifty White Drug, Pizza Hut, Papa Murphy’s, MGM Wine and Spirits, Keys Cafe, Forest Lake Cleaners, Culvers, PT Nails, Fantastic Sam’s, MN Bread Company, Ma & Paws Pet Grooming Salon, Norman Quack’s, Vannelli’s by the Lake, First State Bank of Wyoming, Bruce’s Foods and The Cornerstone.

April 3 is the deadline for all scholarship applications this year. Students may access to complete applications online.
