About this Article

Lake Park High School senior Michael Amerlan has been gearing up all fall for what he calls "food drive season." The Itasca teen normally competes in track and field in the spring, but when late autumn comes he gears up for a different kind of contest: trying to collect the most food for charity as the holidays approach. This year, he's collected roughly 700 bags.
