OLIVIA, Minn. (KMSP) -

Thanks to donations from across the western portion of the state, the Renville County Food Shelf will be re-open around the corner from their primary location on Wednesday after an arson destroyed their building and supplies last week.

The food pantry will be moving into an office space on round the corner on South 9th Street now that Second Harvest has delivered food and plenty of other equipment, including shelving and a freezer.

A $2,500 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest of the culprits responsible for starting the fire, which was deliberately set in the doorway of the food pantry on Sept. 10.

No arrests have been made so far.

The food pantry was not the only charitable organization affected by the arson. The Redwood/Renville Red Cross and a thrift store also closed and lost inventory used to help those in need.

The Renville County Food Shelf gets no public funding. Instead, all the money and groceries come from community donations. Volunteers run the pantry, which helped nearly 300 families last month.

    Going off to college is an exciting time for the entire family, especially for the upcoming freshman. But with technology, parents can be in touch all the time. What's too much and what's just enough? Freshman move-in day seems to be harder on the parents than the students at Stony Brook University.
