Urgent Request for the North Minneapolis Community & Catalyst Community Partners
As you are all aware, a major tornado touched down in the North Minneapolis area yesterday afternoon. This particular area is served by Catalyst Community Partners, NAIOP Minnesota’s community enhancement partner.
Many of our NAIOP members have helped Catalyst and this neighborhood and they need our help more than ever this week! The devastation that occurred is much worse than it appears on the TV stations. Many families are displaced, homes are in shambles and debris is everywhere.
If you can help, please consider donating any of the items listed below. You can either bring them to the May 24 NAIOP Minnesota program (8:00 am at the Sheraton Bloomington hotel), or contact Julie Yeazle of RJM Construction at 952-893-8266 or Sonja Dusil of NorthMarq at 612-305-2144.
Members of our Community Enhancement Committee will be collecting items and delivering them to Catalyst this week. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
