ST. CLOUD - The Norman C. Skalicky Foundation and the Central Minnesota Community Foundation are conducting their community matching challenge for area food shelves again this year.

They will match every dollar donated, up to $50,000.  The money raised will go to three area food shelves: Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, and the St. Joseph food shelves.

Last year the community charity challenge raised nearly $110,000.  And, since Skalicky started the challenge in 2001, over $925,000 has been donated.

Contributions can be sent directly to the food shelves, to the attention of "Food Shelf Charity Challenge".
