Campus Ministry Reminds St. Thomas Community that Help is Still Needed in North Minneapolis

Campus Ministry reminds the St. Thomas community that North Minneapolis is still in great need of help to recover from the recent tornado. Campus Ministry has forwarded three suggestions for helping offered by Minnesota Public Radio:

Make a donation

The city of Minneapolis is asking for donations of funds and not goods. The Minneapolis Foundation has established the Minnesota Helps – North Minneapolis Recovery Fund to assist with both short-term and long-term housing and recovery-related needs on the North Side. To make a donation by credit card, visit, or send checks for the recovery effort to the Minneapolis Foundation, 80 S. 8th St., Suite 800, Minneapolis, MN 55402

The Red Cross is accepting donations for its Disaster Relief Fund.  Donations help provide shelter, food and other assistance to victims of disasters. Please do not donate goods at this time. Donors can also text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

North Side Volunteer Clean-Up Day

Volunteers are needed for the Saturday, June 4, clean-up day.  Those who want to participate must register in advance by calling 311 or (612) 673-3000. City officials hope to mobilize 2,000 volunteers on Saturday to help clear light debris from the tornado-damaged neighborhood.

Help rebuild the neighborhood

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity is looking for volunteers to help with the rebuilding process once the initial clean-up phase is over. More information is available on its website, or email
