The Salvation Army delivers cleanup kits to flooded areas of Minnesota

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — The Salvation Army provided more than 300 cleanup kits to areas of Minnesota hit hardest by the recent flooding.

“There’s been a request from a couple different counties,” explained Major Fred Mead, Northern Division Emergency Disaster Services administrator. “We delivered 50 kits to Pine County area after Willow River topped its banks. We've also delivered kits to Hinckley, Brainerd and St. Cloud areas.”

The cleanup kits are being distirbuted by emergency workers and can also be picked up at local Salvation Army locations.

The flood cleanup kits are five gallon buckets filled with all sorts of supplies needed to clean a home damaged by water. They come complete with bleach, sponges, squeegees and scrub brushes as well as latex gloves, work gloves and dust masks.
