ST. CLOUD -- The Norman C. Skalicky Foundation is increasing its match for its 10th annual Community Charity Challenge from $25,000 to $40,000.

The money will match local donations to our local food shelves.

About two weeks remain in the challenge where the St. Cloud area community has already donated $31,000 toward the cause.

Last year, a record $142,000 was raised to support Catholic Charities, Salvation Army and St. Joseph food shelves.

Donations can be made online at Community or by check payable to the Central Minnesota Community Foundation care of Community Challenge.

The deadline to donate is December 31st.
