Ray and Marilyn Brink of Lutheran Brotherhood, Branch Number 8390, made a donation of hats and gloves to four area schools this past week: Wadena-Deer Creek, Staples-Motley, Verndale and Bertha-Hewitt. The Lutheran Brotherhood group spent $400 on the caps and mittens and delivered them to the elementary principal, Mrs. Kempe, at the Bertha-Hewitt School and to the elementary principals at the other schools. The caps and gloves are for children who need them and some will be kept at the school for use when the need arises.
