Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on March 2.
After Tuesday's devastating fire, your Alexandria Area Community Foundation (AACF) has established a long term disaster relief fund called the Alexandria Response Fund.
Gifts via credit card can be directed to the fund at: http://www.communitygiving.org/don…/alexandria-response-fund
Checks can be mailed to:
AACF c/o CommunityGiving
101 7th Ave. S, Ste. 100
St. Cloud, MN 56301
Specify "Alexandria Response Fund" on the memo line.
Gifts made to the fund will initially be focused on assisting people impacted by the recent fire in downtown Alexandria. The fund will also be available in the future to assist with other potential disasters or catastrophic events. AACF will work with local agencies, such as West Central Communities Action, to disseminate charitable funds and assist those affected via these partnerships.
Holly Witt, Executive Director of AACF, stated "Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the tragic fire in downtown Alexandria on Tuesday and we wanted to help provide funding to support those impacted by the disaster. Generous donors who want to help can make donations to the Alexandria Response Fund". Locally, AACF, Ameriprise Financial and Bell Bank will each contribute a starter gift of $5,000 to the Alexandria Response Fund.
