Flood 13 - 1st Ave Car

How to help victims of the flood in Duluth, MN

You may have heard of the flood in Duluth and you may have seen pictures all over the internet, the Weather Channel and newspapers. While our house was mostly unaffected, many people had 3′-4′ of standing water & sewage in their basements, ruining much of what they owned, not to mention all the damage to the actual homes. Cars were ruined (even swallowed whole in sinkholes) and residents of Duluth and surrounding communities lost a lot. In Duluth alone it’s estimated that public facilities damages will be over $50 million. I was able to capture pictures of some of the damage here and here.

Hillside Church will be hosting an Area-wide Clothing & Household Item Giveaway for area residents and victims of the Flood on June 30 11am-2pm. If you would like to donate gently used clothing and quality household items (electronics will not be accepted), please drop them off at 201 East First Street, Duluth, MN 55802 (the Encounter building next to Union Gospel). Items can be dropped off Monday-Thursday 10am-4pm or Sundays before 11am. For more information please call 218.728.5500
