MSU Summer Theatre donates to flood recovery
Minot State University Summer Theatre and Campus Players presented checks Sept. 1 to Western Plains Children's Choir, the Minot Public Schools Foundation and I Helped Rebuild Minot Project. Each group received $1,400 to support flood relief. The $4,200 were raised during benefit performances of "Don't Dress for Dinner," which closed out Summer Theatreís 46th season.
"The charitable organizations were selected for a variety of reasons: WPCC because they were not able to do their summer production so they have no income for expenses during this year; the MPS Foundation because of lost books and supplies at the various schools; and I Helped Rebuild Minot Project because it is a great way to help all of us get back into our houses whenever that may be," said Kevin Neuharth, associate professor of communication arts and director of Summer Theatre.
The Western Plains Childrenís Choir and Minot Public Schools were impacted by the 2011 Souris River flood. I Helped Rebuild Minot Projectís mission is to buy sheetrock and give it to everyone who needs it. As its primary fundraising method, the project is selling I Helped Rebuild Minot "sheetrock shirts" with all proceeds after costs going toward buying sheetrock for those impacted by the flood, www.ihelpedrebuildminot.com/minotflood.
