IRON MOUNTAIN — The Michigan State Police is kicking off the annual Michigan Harvest Gathering starting Friday and running through October 24.

The campaign raises food and funds for Michigan’s emergency food response. There are many reasons why some Michiganders are in need of help. Some folks in our communities have temporarily lost their job and do not have the resources to shop for their week’s groceries. Some are elderly residents who have exhausted their fixed incomes on medications.

If you can help, please donate non-perishable too items at the Michigan State Police, Iron Mountain Post at 1916 N. Stephenson Ave., in Iron Mountain. If the post is closed after business hours, a donation box will be placed through the first door of the post.

The Iron Mountain Post will be hosting “Stuff a Goose” at the following locations, dates, and times:

  • Iron River at Angeli’s Central Market — October 21 and 23 from 12-3 p.m.
  • Iron Mountain at Econo Foods — October 22 and 24 from 12-3 p.m.

Donations of non perishable items will be accepted at these locations and times, and participants will be able to put them in a Michigan State Police patrol vehicle with troopers present.

What is collected in each county will stay in that county.
