Big Donation Comes In To Help Flood Victims

On the six month anniversary of the Northland floods, officials in Duluth announced a $250,000 grant that will help continue the region’s flood recovery.

The June floods destroyed roads and left shocking amounts of damage and debris in its wake. Workers have repaired much of that damage, but many residents are still struggling with the costly aftermath.

The Duluth/Superior Area Community Foundation made the generous donation. The group donated the grant that will match private flood recovery donations.

The money is expected to go to help those with the greatest hardships.

The grant will also pay for reconstruction in the spring. Duluth officials also said that more donations are still needed. They hope to raise another million dollars to meet the needs of flood victims. Donations can be directed to the United Way of Greater Duluth.
