RHINELANDER - Getting your car fixed in Rhinelander this spring ended up helping feed families in the Northwoods.

Northwoods Auto Techs donated $1,017 to the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry this week.  The car repair shop donated $3 for every service invoice in March and April, which equates to 339 invoices.


The pantry says shop owner Paul Marquardt always uses the pantry's Spring Challenge to give back to the community. The pantry gets a partial match for all donations during March and April.

The pantry's budget is around $180,000 in 2019, relying almost entirely on donations such as this one.
