Minneapolis tornado cleanup: No more volunteers needed
Minneapolis put out a call for volunteers, and people answered fast. Two thousand people have signed up for Saturday's big cleanup, and now the city doesn't need anyone else.
And don't bother showing up thinking you can get around the rules--only people who are already signed up will be able to participate.
The local chapters of the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army don't need volunteers either. "Isn't that a great problem to have?" says Annette Bauer, PR director for the Northern Division of the Salvation Army.
But there are still plenty of ways to help--namely, with your wallet.
As we've explained before, there a few places to donate:
- North Minneapolis Recovery Fund
- Northside Home Fund--Tornado Relief
- Red Cross of Minnesota
- Salvation Army of Minnesota and North Dakota
