‘Re-Building Minot’ Mass Care Feeding Back Again For The Summer

Thanks to a grant from the Minot Area Community Foundation, the American Red Cross ‘Rebuilding Minot’ Mass Care Feeding will once again take place this summer. The feeding will begin this weekend (June 1st/2nd) and run through September 2nd, 2013.

The Red Cross will provide water, food, snacks, cleanup supplies and emotional/moral support for people in the Minot and Burlington area, as they continue to work on their flood damaged homes.

Along with local Red Cross staff, there is still a need for volunteers to distribute these humanitarian supplies from our Emergency Response Vehicles (ERV’s). Contact Mid-Dakota Chapter Executive Allan McGeough at 701-852-2828, Ext. 2145 or by email at allan.mcgeough@redcross.org if interested in helping out.

Twelve people are needed to cover each weekend (6 per day) and volunteers can hand out supplies or drive the ERV.

“From our volunteers, our donors and our staff, all of us at the Red Cross are excited to be able to partner with the community to help feed those that continue rebuilding their homes,” said Allan McGeough, Mid-Dakota Chapter Executive of the Red Cross.

Red Cross volunteers work shifts beginning at 8 a.m. and ending around 7 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. Last year, over 10,000 meals/snacks were served during the re-building efforts.
