Marquette, MI – (04/17/20) – A grassroots effort to get food and other items into the hands of those in need during the coronavirus pandemic is happening in downtown Negaunee. Lorrie Hayes, organizer of the “Take What You Need, Leave What You Can” effort joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about it.
Hayes explained that it’s a pop-up effort that happens daily, weather permitting, in front of Smarty’s Saloon on Iron Street usually from about 10:00am to 6:00pm. She is teamed up with Scott “Smarty” Soeltner, the owner of Smarty’s Saloon in the effort and, so far, the response has been very good.
She said that the general concept is to have food and other items available at the table that people, who may be having tough times dues to being out of work from the coronavirus shutdowns, can take as needed. The other aspect is to leave items at the table, if you can, to help out the less fortunate.
Hayes said that is people have any questions or want to find out more information about getting involved, she can be reached through her business line at her shop, The Screened Image, at (906) 226-6112. Leave a message and she’ll get back to you.
