Tornado recovery information distributed door-to-door in north Minneapolis

The City of Minneapolis and its partners are helping North Side residents get the information they need as the recovery continues. The public can also help spread the word to their neighbors who may have been affected so they know what services are available and how to access them.

Keeping residents informed is an important part of the continuing efforts of the City and its partners to get folks back in their homes, ensure their safety, and provide the assistance and resources they need to make it through this difficult time.

As part of that effort to let people know about resources that are available, a flyer has been created that describes what’s available at the Disaster Recovery Center . For people who can’t make it to the center, the flyer also provides locations and phone numbers where people can seek food assistance, apply for emergency shelter, get help with prescriptions, get clothing vouchers, and take advantage of other services.

Folks with friends and neighbors on the North Side can help out by printing off the flyer and sharing it with people who may need recovery assistance. About 12,000 copies of the flier are being distributed door-to-door starting today in the new edition of the North News newspaper to many of the properties in the area hit by the tornado. Volunteers and City employees are also distributing the information as they work in the neighborhoods.
