Help Lake Street Clean-up and Rebuild

Help Lake Street Clean-up and Rebuild

As we all witnessed the devastation across our beloved community, there are a lot of great people who would like to help out. There are tons of ways you can get involved whether by financial donations to rebuild the businesses destroyed or donating items to those effected by the destruction.

Here’s several links that you can use to find ways to participate!

The Lake Street Council (501c3) will donate 100% of funds to help rebuild Lake Street, starting with direct support to small businesses and nonprofits to help them rebuild their storefronts, reopen their businesses and serve our neighborhoods.

#SupportTheCities  By connecting volunteers from across the Twin Cities with those who are seeking help, the needs of our great city will be met. One connection at a time.

City Pages compiled a list of businesses that could use help from volunteers and financial partners.

Star Tribue has released a call-to-action for Minnesotans who want to help and also for those who are in need of help.

There are several other groups out there across social media platforms and gofundme campaigns that are helping to organize the effort to rebuild after riot damage. Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook all have community pages that you can find to offer your services or seek out drop sites for donated items like household items, baby goods, and food for those effected by this tragedy.

The amount of involvement right now that is incredibly encouraging. Rebuilding Minneapolis will be a long standing effort. Those looking to help out are encouraged to stay engaged over the next few months as more opportunities to take part arise such as helping rebuild businesses and supporting businesses as they reopen.
