Our Minnesota nice has shone through these past few days to help out our neighbors in need. Here’s a running total of what has been collected so far and other ways you can help. 

So far, the Salvation Army has collected over $50 thousand dollars in donations as well as two full semi trailers and four large van loads worth of non perishable food, bottled water, personal and household items, furniture, clothes, bedding and towels. The donations came in fast and will likely disappear just as fast, so they still need you. Here are some other ways to help:

1. The Salvation Army is collecting donations of non-perishable food items such as bottled water, peanut butter and canned goods as well as personal hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, diapers, baby wipes and feminine products as well as toys and NEW blankets, sheets, bedding and towels at two separate locations. Starting Monday, the Salvation Army will be collecting donations at their permanent locations. Food and hygiene items can be dropped off at 2024 Lyndale Avenue North in Minneapolis. Furniture and clothing can be dropped off at 900 North 4th Street in Minneapolis.

2. Text your donation – Type the word BLESSING and text it to 85944. A $10 donation will be made in your name and added to your account. (Normal text and data rates may apply. Check with your wireless company to learn more.)

3. Mail checks or money orders to:

American Red Cross – Twin Cities Area Chapter

NW 5597 PO Box 1450

Minneapolis, MN 55485-5597

– OR –

The Salvation Army

2445 Prior Avenue

Roseville, MN 55113

Make sure to designate your donation by referencing “METRO STORM” on the memo line.

4. Donate Online – The Salvation Army and the Twin Cities Red Cross have secure websites if you would like to donate via credit card.

5. Call in – You may call 612-460-3700 to reach the Red Cross during business hours or, dial 1-800-SAL-ARMY any time.

If you are a mental health professional and would like to assist by providing emotional support during this time, please call 612-872-3204 to learn more.
