Meet the baker delivering ‘Comfort Pies’ to cities hit by tragedy

NBC Nightly News | Rose McGee started baking sweet potato “comfort pies” in 2014, delivering them to Ferguson, Missouri, and to many other cities in need of healing. Now she’s helping her hometown of Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd.

COVID19 Grants in Golden Valley

We created GVCF COVID19 Grants to directly support local aid organizations in the community. Because of support from local donors like you and the Minnesota Disaster Recovery Fund, GVCF awards these grants quickly to local non-profit service organizations in need.
