With chainsaws and rakes, volunteers show up by the hundreds
I volunteered on Monday with Urban Homeworks. They were extremely organized and ready to work. This is definitely an organization I will look into helping more! Way to go everyone!!
What an amazing turnout of volunteers. True Minnesotan spirit. Thank you volunteers. Keep up the good work.
I love the giving spirit of the people of the great state of MN!!! Keep the great, heartwarming stories coming Trib!
In my neighborhood, we would clean it up ourselves.
Medtronic Corp - What an extrordinary and IMPRESSIVE gesture!
andylew - That's great, and isn't it great to know that if your neighborhood DID need some extra hands, that people are willing to step up and help a neighbor out?
To each person that stepped foot in to the war zone that used to be North Minneapolis I say thank you. Minnesotan's are typically reserved, and many avoid North Minneapolis due to crime, gangs, etc. In the face of disaster the residents of our fine state rallied. I saw people confort, embrace, and support complete strangers. Try that in CA, NY, etc. I think this memorial day I will be remembering you with the many heros that we celebrate on that day. Thank you!
North Minneapolis is "home" for Urban Homeworks as they have been there for years working on rebuilding a number of homes in the neighborhood. No surprise they are there helping, they are a great organization.
Awesome article. This shows we really do care about the people in north Minneapolis. Maybe this will open some eyes of the people who didnt think anyone cared.
Thank you Phil Borer and Jim Porath, I remember you as neighbors too. Jim, you lived across the alley from my family. Thanks for volunteering. I watch from Northern Wisconsin and wish I could be there to volunteer as well. Northsiders' will always remember their roots.
