Minnesota Star’s “Duluth News”
By Ryan SmithPosted October 12, 2018 09:29:57Minnesota Star’s Devin Daugherty and his wife, Jennifer, have just relocated from Chicago to Duluth, Minnesota.
It was only a few months ago when Daugittys husband was a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, where he was studying in computer science and electrical engineering.
He left after just one semester.
But in the meantime, Daugittleys family has remained in Duluth.
And in an effort to help the city’s homeless, they’ve opened up their first shelter, the Duluth Food Bank, and started an online fundraising campaign to help them find food.
“We just felt that we could do something positive,” said Jennifer Daugieres husband, who is also a professor of electrical engineering and computer science.
So, they decided to help out.
The Daugies started the Duluzewebs online crowdfunding campaign, which has already raised over $40,000.
With the help of the Minnesota Department of Human Services and the Dulux Community Foundation, they are now on track to bring in another $200,000, which they hope will help them start their own shelter in the coming months.
Daugiebs family also has been in touch with other homeless people, offering to host them in their home.
They hope that by opening up their own place, they can also help the homeless find food and shelter.
A lot of people have donated to their cause, and Daugigys hopes that people will take a moment to check out their campaign and donate, too.
