Fresh off a successful March campaign to raise two million pounds of food in the Twin Cities, the Salvation Army of the North is not letting up on their efforts to help people across Minnesota struggling with the fallout from the reaction to COVID-19 over the last year.

“Hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans who are still out of work, and are still being affected by the economic hardships. And we’re going to continue to raise food and raise funds in order to provide the services that we do.”

Spokesman Dan Furry says they are continuing to plan fundraising and food drive events this spring and summer, adding people can still donate now at two-million-pound-dot-org. Donations made online are earmarked by zip code to stay in the donor’s local community.
