E-mail Print PDF
To help Minnesota’s tornado relief efforts, RBC Foundation – USA has made a $25,000 donation to the American Red Cross to aid the victims of the storm that ripped through the northern metro area this past Sunday. If you are interested in making a personal donation, you may do so and follow the regular gift-matching procedure. This match will count against the annual maximum of four gift matches or $500. Please note that the Foundation can only match U.S.-based public charities and strongly encourages employees to donate to reputable organizations such as the American Red Cross, as scams are common when disasters of this nature occur.

Additionally, RBC Wealth Management is organizing a Cub Foods gift card drive for two teachers and various families of Anwatin Middle School who were impacted by the storm. RBC WM has had a 25+ year partnership with Anwatin and is happy to continue supporting this community school during this disaster. If you’d like to help, Cub Foods gift cards may be purchased in increments of $25 and delivered to Shana Deuel (mail stop P20) by next Tuesday, May 31. 

If you’re looking to do something else to help Minnesota tornado victims, the Northeast Armory is the primary support resource for families. They have shelter, hot food, housing resources and mental health counseling. The Northeast Armory is located at 1025 Broadway St. NE (just east of Broadway and Central). For further information, call (651) 268-8537. Northeast Armory is also accepting clothing donations at 1025 Broadway.

If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Koster at (612) 371-2765.
