Relief efforts under way for victims of Galleria fire

Relief and recovery efforts have been established to help 150 residents displaced by Monday’s blaze at Fargo’s Galleria On 42nd apartment complex.

Donations of clothing, household goods, furniture, hygiene products and children’s items are being accepted at Shepherd of the Prairie Church, 6151 25th St. S., Fargo.

Gift cards from retail stores are needed, along with new and gently used winter clothing, young women’s clothing and general household items.

The public can drop off donated items between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Volunteers to staff the donation site and organize items are also needed.

The United Way of Cass-Clay has established a long-term recovery fund for fire victims.

There are three ways people can give to the recovery fund:
