Minot Flood Relief
Minot, ND is experiencing historic flooding of the Souris (Mouse) River,
which has displaced thousands of citizens. The Sons of Norway Foundation
has been in touch with district and local lodge (Thor 4-067) leaders in
Minot. They have reported that up to 75 Sons of Norway families may be
faced with major damage to their homes due to this catastrophe.
The Sons of Norway Foundation, a 501 c 3 charity, has a Humanitarian Fund from which
$1,000 Helping Hands to Members Grants are awarded to aid members who are
victims of natural disasters. The grants assist our members in their time
of great need, helping them purchase items, like bottled water, groceries
and other severely needed supplies to keep them going during the clean-up
In true fraternal spirit, the Foundation is calling on all Sons of Norway
members and lodges who can help with this relief effort to making a tax
deductible donation* to the Humanitarian Fund. This will ensure that the
Fund stands ready to help with current and future disasters. You may donate
on-line (click here) or send your checks with “Minot” in the memo line (no
cash please) to Sons of Norway Foundation, Att: Minot, 1455 West Lake
Street, Minneapolis, MN 55408.
Please accept our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the victims who will
benefit from your generosity.
