Nicole and Joe - After the Fire

Fire tore through the Oakland Apartments in downtown Minneapolis on Sunday afternoon. Built in 1888, the historic building was home to numerous tenants, including our friends Nicole Jacobson and Joe Gaskill, and their cat Glen, Jr.

Thankfully, they made it out alive, but lost most of their belongings in the fire, smoke and water damage. Let's help them out during this difficult time by giving what we can, so they can begin rebuilding their lives.

Thank you!
