U.S. Bank will contribute $25,000 to support residents of North Minneapolis who were impacted by the May 22 tornado that hit the area. The contribution will go to the Minneapolis Foundation for the Northside Home Fund and Minnesota Helps.

“U.S. Bank has served North Minneapolis families and businesses for generations through our West Broadway office,” said Elliot Jaffee, Twin Cities market president at U.S. Bank. “Minneapolis is our hometown and we are eager to be a part of the recovery. This is a strategic and coordinated effort led by the City of Minneapolis and the Northside Home Fund. The Northside Home Fund has been working for several years to coordinate efforts to deal with housing issues on the north side and is coordinating responses to the housing problems created by the tornado.”

U.S. Bank employees also volunteered with the clean-up efforts. Mohammed Agoubi, branch manager at the U.S. Bank West Broadway office, organized a work team that helped with the clean-up on Wednesday, May 25.
