“Grumpy Old Men” Flagpole Food Drive is back

The 30th annual “Grumpy Old Men” food drive in 2020 was not held in person, but the group asked for people to contribute via mail or by dropping off food items or money at the River Falls food pantry. Many of you stepped up and helped your community by contributing in 2020 and the "Grumpy Old Men" thank you.

Well guess what? They're back and there are two options to donate.

  1. In honor of the original Grumpy Old Men, Jerry Carter and Mel Germanson, the group will be at Memorial Park by the flag downtown River Falls collecting again this year. On Tuesday, Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. A new group of Grumpy Old Men will be collecting non-perishable food items, cash or checks written out to River Falls Food Pantry % Grumpy Old Men.

  2. Like last year you can mail a check to the River Falls Food Pantry, %Grumpy Old Men, 705 St Croix St., P.O. Box 341, River Falls, WI 54022.  Your support is very appreciated and needed.
