Fun and a good cause: Local brewery helps reopen Lincoln Park Community Center

Dunk tank

DULUTH, MN -- Ursa Minor Brewing hosted a dunk tank fundraiser Friday to help provide new resources for the Lincoln Park Community Center.

Brewery goers had the opportunity to pay $1, $2, or $20 to dunk the employees.

The money raised will go towards a new computer lab and free internet access in the Lincoln Park Community Center.

The center, which has been closed since the start of the pandemic, is now hoping to reopen its doors with more resources than it previously offered.

Jodi Slick with Ecolibrium3, working to reopen the center, says the project will mean a lot for community members.

"It's really important to have our community members connected because so many of the resources that they may need are online," said Slick. "Access to jobs, being able to keep up with school, all of those things that we've learned during the pandemic are really dependent on that connectivity."

The community center also hopes to add a dining room upstairs, and a warming shelter for the winter.

There is no solidified cost for the computer lab or internet yet but the center hopes to reopen sometime this fall.
