The Northern Minnesota Red Cross reached out to us with the following request:

 

We will be holding a Flood Canvassing event in the St. Cloud area on Thursday, March 27th.  A youth group in the area will be canvassing neighborhoods leaving behind resources and information at each household.  We are looking for another group of volunteers who would be willing to stuff the bags that will be left on people’s doors.
