Make A Difference For A Family Here In The Lakes Area


As we get closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas, we might take for granted the holiday meals that we plan for our family. Most of us can afford a Turkey and all the trimmings for Thanksgiving, or a Christmas ham with side dishes and dessert. Maybe you just jump in the car and go to your parents, grandparents, or in-laws for the holidays and you don’t have to cook at all.

The reality is, some families don’t have parents or grandparents or in-laws close by or at all, and have nowhere to go for the holidays. For many, they just can’t afford a holiday meal. You can help.

Our friends at Cub Foods have partnered with the Salvation Army and all of us at Hubbard Radio, for the Holiday Food Basket Program. Our goal this year is to support 800 families here in the lakes area with holiday meals.

Your donation of $25.00 will provide a family in the Brainerd Lakes Area with a Cub Foods gift card that can be used to purchase a wholesome holiday meal. If you can’t afford a donation of $25.00, that’s O.K., any amount is appreciated. Of course, if you are able, you can give more than $25.00!

To make your donation, stop by either the Brainerd or Baxter Cub Foods Stores, or the Pequot Lakes Supervalue Store. Make your check payable to the Salvation Army. You can also mail in your donation as well. Here are the addresses:

  • Brainerd Cub Foods, 417 8th Ave. NE Brainerd, MN 56401
  • Baxter Cub Foods, 14133 Edgewood Dr. Baxter, MN 56425
  • Pequot Lakes Supervalue, 30581 Patriot Ave. Pequot Lakes, MN 56472

Holiday Food Basket donations are being accepted through December 15th.

Please consider a donation, and Thank you, from all of us at Cub Foods, the Salvation Army, and Hubbard Radio.

We wish you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season.
