Help Melrose Rebuild, Recover Following Downtown Fire

Make a Donation to Support the Melrose Area Relief Fund

On Sept. 9, residents of Melrose, Minn., a town of 3,600 people just 45 minutes west of St. Cloud, awoke to find nearly an entire block of their downtown ravaged by a destructive fire that displaced nearly two dozen apartment tenants and a host of main street businesses.

 While no one was injured in the blaze, those who lived in the upper-floor apartments lost their homes and all of their possessions. Among the nearly one dozen affected businesses were a salon, a Hispanic grocery store, a realty company, a financial services organization, a coffee shop, restaurant and boutique.

Support the Melrose Area Relief Fund and its goal to raise $10,000. Working together, and supported by a $5,000 Initiative Foundation matching grant, we can help those affected return to a new sense of normal—sooner rather than later. Thank you!
