WILLMAR - Lakeland Elementary School students in Willmar participated in a contest Wednesday to see who could bring in the most food donations for the Kandiyohi County Food Shelf. The students brought in over 2,000 items. The class that brought the most overall donations will have the opportunity to bring the items to the food shelf Friday morning. The highest donating class in each grade will be treated with an ice cream party.

Lexi Wubben, Lakeland child guide, helped coordinate the program. "We did not expect that the students would bring this many donations," Wubben said. "It's so amazing - we even had kids bringing money from their own piggy banks to give to the food shelf."
