Northwest Minnesota Foundation: Assisting Businesses During the Pandemic


Karen White of the Northwest Minnesota Foundation joins Heidi on our extended hour of the Wednesday Morning show.  Karen talks about the large geographical area that the foundation serves and how they can help these communities and their businesses during the COVID-19 crisis.  They are especially focused on food insecurity and homelessness as well as child care and assisting with small business.  Check out their resource page that has a lot of information about help during this pandemic, not just thru the NW MN Foundation.
