Northeastern Minnesota gets $500,000 Cargill grant for flood relief.

It was announced on Sunday that the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation received $500,000 from the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation for flood relief. Foundation President Holly Sampson told WDIO-News that it’s the biggest outside donation the area has received since the June flood.

The money will help fund three things. It will help disaster case managers from Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, unmet needs reported by the Long-Term Recovery Committee and non-profits that suffered property damage.
