Helping Our Friends in the Wake of a Fire

On Wednesday night the house of Regi and Amy Haslett-Marroquin burned to the ground. They got out just in time, but lost all of their possessions. Regi is the Director of the Rural Enterprise Center which helps Latino families to become agripreneurs. Amy is a teacher at Prairie Creek Community School. The family also runs Finca Marisol which raises sustainable poultry using innovative methods. They have three children ages 16, 13 and 8.

You can help the Haslett-Marroquins in this time of need. At Just Food Co-op we are accepting cash donations at the registers, which will be used to purchase an ongoing stream of Co-op gift cards for the family.

There are many other opportunities being set up to help throughout the community. A support fund is being established at First National Bank of Northfield. For more information or to contribute, please contact Rick Estenson at 507-645-5656.

There are also two websites that have been created to assist with other things. One is for meals and clothing, and the other is a Facebook page set up by the students at ARTech to organize fundraisers. Feel free to join or check out either of these links:
