Raising Funds for Typhoon Victims

Raising Funds for Typhoon Victims

Posted: Updated:

Minot received help and support after the 2011 flood surged through the city.

Now, community members are choosing to pay it forward to others in need.

"Minot Steps Up" is an event geared toward raising funds for typhoon recovery efforts in the Philippines.

The event started a little over an hour ago and will continue until 9 this evening.

The event includes food prepared by the organization "Fil-Am," live music, a gingerbread house contest and an ugly sweater sale.

All the of the funds raised will be made available to the Philippines through Lutheran Disaster Response.

(Dan Hansen, Event Co-Coordinator)"This time of the year, people are a little more geared towards giving, and triple-giving, and we just wanted to create an opportunity for people to come out and to give back this holiday season.

The event is happening right now at Margie's Art Glass Studio on Main Street.

A $5 dollar donation is suggested at the door.
