The Superior Rotary Club has donated $1,700 to the Salvation Army so the organization can replace three industrial freezers lost during the June 19-20 storm.
“We are grateful for this donation,” said Salvation Army Maj. Rosemary Mattson. “In addition to our industrial freezers, we lost refrigerators, the food shelf was flooded and water damaged the basement of our building and three offices. We thank the Superior Rotary Club for their generosity.”
Estimated damage to the Salvation Army building and contents is $60,000. This figure will rise when damage to the building’s infrastructure has been documented.
“Fortunately, no one was injured because of the storm,” said Mattson.
“Our Rotary Club is pleased to help the Salvation Army so the organization can continue providing needed services to community members,” said Warren Bender, Superior Rotary Club president. Rotary Club donations are funded through member and community support of the annual Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival and other Rotary programs and projects.
