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.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
