The Edina Rotary Foundation recently awarded a grant to The Salvation Army to be used for hurricane recovery efforts.
 
The Foundation in late October awarded a grant of $3,250 to the Salvation Army. In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate, The Salvation Army responded with one of the largest disaster relief operations in its history.
 
The grant was initiated by the Rotary Club of Edina’s Community Service–Local Funding Committee.

The committee is currently accepting grants for other projects in Edina and the communities that border it. Applications are due Oct. 31. Grant applications are available online at www.EdinaRotary.org or by contacting Directors Brandon Azbill, brandon@davidazbillgroup.com, or Paul Peterson,
paul@paulpeterson.com. Completed applications should be emailed to Azbill or Peterson or sent to Edina Rotary Foundation, 4801 W. 50th St., Edina, MN 55424.
Emergency Disaster Services teams from across the United States and Canada immediately responded to the storms and provided food, hydration and
emotional and spiritual care to survivors and first responders. After many weeks of active disaster response, The Salvation Army is transitioning into long-term recovery services in areas impacted by the first two storms—Harvey and Irma—in Texas, Florida and Georgia.
 
The grant was initiated by the Rotary Club of Edina’s Community Service–Local Funding Committee.
