Our JANUARY Social Generosity Offering will go to the Minneapolis Foundation, and specifically their efforts to support survivors of the recent Drake Hotel fire. The Foundation’s goal is to immediately support urgent needs – such as safe temporary shelter, food, and emergency supplies – while also developing strategies to help families find affordable and stable long-term housing. So far, the Minneapolis Foundation has distributed $133,000 from the Minnesota Helps – Drake Hotel Fire Recovery Fund. Visit minneapolisfoundation.org to learn more and check out this article in the Star Tribune.
