Essentials and Delivery for Stephanie Wilford

On Saturday, May 30, Ben Henry of KSTP did a powerful interview with Minneapolis resident Stephanie  Wilford regarding the destruction of local businesses due to ongoing riots following the death of George Floyd.  In the interview, Stephanie indicated the only stores she can shop at were destroyed and she has no access to public transportation because of closures.

Her powerful words struck the hearts of many neighbors near and far on social media who want to help.  I am Jill, a fellow Minneapolis neighbor.  Her story brought me to tears and I wanted to do something to help. After encouragement on social media through Twitter - I reached out to Stephanie for approval to establish this Go Fund Me. This is an opportunity to provide direct financial relief through donations to Stephanie to help get essentials/transportation to shop (perhaps Shipt or Amazon subscriptions). The response and willingness to help Stephanie financially as well as in person has been overwhelming. Another neighbor, Ann, and myself have been working together and in regular contact with Stephanie. The funds will go to Stephanie directly.
