Gift cards to local restaurants, Dakota Mart and Walmart are a great option right now. Please consider supporting local businesses. Many restaurants offer delivery so that the person/family you are gifting the meal to won't even have to leave home. Gift cards can be dropped off at LMC where they will be given out to those in need.
