A teen from Prior Lake is receiving some major assistance as she raises money for a local food shelf.

Sanya Pirani is aiming to raise $10,000 and she could already be halfway there.


A donor has offered to match up to $5,000 in donations. Sanya is hoping to get the word out to help reach her goal.

"Every $1 is $9 worth of food and so whatever contribution you can make will make a difference, even if it's $5," Sanya told KSTP.

Sanya's charitable efforts go well beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. She launched 'Sanya's Hope for Children' three years ago to help impoverished kids in Minnesota and around the world.
