Minneapolis Middle School Overwhelmed By The Community's Donations


Last week, a middle school in Minneapolis needed donations of meal kits for students in need. As soon as the community saw their cry for help cars lined up to donate and were stretched 14 blocks long. Sanford Middle School ended up getting thousands of donations.

The surrounding grocery and convenience stores where destroyed in result of ongoing protests happening due to the murder of George Floyd.

"We had a parent that reached out to us who was checking in with other families in the community, and we heard they needed food. Due to the protests, a lot of stores are shut down and burnt down, and we have a lot of kids that don't have transportation," Sanford special education teacher Jabari Browne told Insider.

With that the school sent out an email asking the community for help and the email went viral very quickly on social media.

"The truth is, anybody here in Minneapolis that is hurting for whatever reason, should come and get food. We've got plenty. We've been overwhelmed by the grace of our community," Principal Nelson said.
