The Minnesota Vikings announced today (August 16) they are teaming up with the United Way and many communities in the greater Duluth area to raise money and awareness in support of those impacted by the devastating flooding in June.

Starting today, Vikings fans have the opportunity to help those hit by the flood with a $5 donation. To donate, text “FLOOD12″ to 20222. Proceeds from this campaign will go to the Twin Ports Region Long-Term Flood Relief Fund.

Beside this campaign, the Vikings will be donating $10,000 to the fund on Friday night (August 17) during the Vikings-Bills preseason game that night. Team owners Zygi and Mark Wilf will present a check to area mayors Don Ness of Duluth, Bruce Ahlgren of Cloquet, Jason Goodwin of Barnum, and Ted Shaw of Moose Lake.

Mark Wilf offered the following thoughts on the flooding and fundraising campaign:

Thousands of Minnesotans were impacted by the massive flooding this summer. It is critical for us as an organization to use our platform to raise awareness about this disaster and support these families.

Their support is greatly appreciated after recent news many residents with damage won’t receive much, if any financial assistance from the government as northlanders try to rebuild and re-establish after the flood.
