Lakeville Food Shelf Now Accepting Donations - APPRO & CERRON offices are drop site until 8-8-2014Lakeville Chamber Food & Fund Drive is going on now through August 8th. As, APPRO Development and CERRON Commercial Properties cares a lot about our local kids, we have joined the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce Food Drive to put child-friendly foods on the shelves of our 2 local food shelves – 360 Communities and The Open Door (formerly the Eagan & Lakeville Resources Center). Roz Peterson, Commercial Real Estate Agent with CERRON, put it this way, “When kids are in school the only meal they may have is the lunch provided for them. Now that kids are home for the summer, the need is even greater to fill our food shelves. That is why we are partnering with the chamber and we need your donations”.
