From my inbox: a request for donations of space heaters from @moreneighbors and Inquilinxs Unidxs for tenants in a slumlord's building who've been without heat. Temperatures here have been in the teens and twenties.

They can be delivered in person, or if you aren't in Minneapolis, you can have them shipped from Target or any other online retailer that delivers, to 3715 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55407

The recommended model is: Honeywell 360 Surround Indoor Heater Black 1500W HHF360B

@lawremipsum @moreneighbors Did they say anything about office hours for drop off? Assuming they aren't open today based on their hours on Facebook?

@laflaneuse @moreneighbors :/ no and their website doesn't appear to have a phone number... Might need to email them?

@lawremipsum @moreneighbors Yeah I can have them shipped instead. Just wishing for a way to get them to people this weekend yet. It's cold.

@lawremipsum @moreneighbors the worst part is that he apparently has radiators in the buildings - he's just being a giant slumlord asshole, and not turning them on.
put 👏 frenz 👏 in 👏 jail

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
