As of Monday evening, the initiative had raised more than $3,500. 

CHUM executive director Lee Stuart said that it's the support of the community and partnerships with the City of Duluth and St. Louis County that has helped them ensure the health of people experiencing homelessness throughout the pandemic.

"What the money does now is it makes sure we have the health and hygiene capacity to do a good job at the shelter in terms of making sure that everybody who wants it has some kind of protective personal equipment, to make sure we have hand washing stations, to make sure we have sanitizing, that we can also take that out into outreach,” Stuart said, “not just at shelter, but also out to people who are living outside, to make sure they have water, food, sanitation.”

WDIO is partnering with local organizations to identify issues and to coordinate our community response. We can accomplish great things when we come together as a community. To learn more about *organization, visit WDIO Creating Change.  Be part of the solution.
