Miracle Eleven Provides Donations to CHUM, Other Shelters
Nearly $6,000 was Donated to Three Local Charities in Dultuh Wesdnesday Morning
DULUTH, Minn. – The CHUM Food Shelf and Shelter in Duluth received a big donation Wednesday from a local non-profit organization.
Miracle Eleven was created by a group of brave men and women after a skydiving plane crash happened over Superior in 2013.
You may recall, nine skydivers and two pilots walked away from the incident with minor injuries.
The lucky survivors decided to create videos of their horrifying experience to share worldwide, with money raised by licensing fees going toward local organizations.
A donation of $3,000 dollars was presented to CHUM staff and volunteers Wednesday morning.
“So far today, we’ve raised a little over $24,000, and as of today we will have given a little over $23,000 away to various charities, mostly local in the Twin Ports area,” said Mike Robinson, a Skydiver with Miracle Eleven.
$2,000 of the donation will be used at CHUM’s emergency shelter, with the other $1,000 going toward food.
“Our Board of Directors decided to focus on homelessness and people who need food this time of year. It makes sense, its cold outside and we’re trying to help people that really do need some help at this point in their life,” said Robinson.
CHUM officials say donations given to the organization in the month of March will be matched.
