Cargill Foundation gives $500K to Duluth flood victims

DULUTH, Minn. – Community leaders in Duluth are announcing a $500,000 grant to help those still recovering from June flash floods that damaged 1,700 homes.

The grant, announced Sunday, is from the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation of Eden Prairie. It’s the largest single outside donation to help recovery efforts in the region. The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation says the money will go toward three areas.

Among them, it will help support disaster case managers for Lutheran Social Services, who act as advocates to help clients get their homes back to pre-flood condition. It will also help rebuild nonprofits affected by the floods.
