CAP Agency

The Community Action Partnership of Scott, Carver and Dakota Counties has put out a call for donations to help neighborhoods in Minneapolis impacted by the unrest following the death of George Floyd. 

Floyd, 46, of St. Louis Park, died on Memorial Day while in police custody. He repeatedly told a Minneapolis police officer he couldn't breathe as the officer knelt on his neck. His death has sparked mass protests and destruction in cities across the nation.

Donations may be dropped off at the organization's donation door, 712 Canterbury Road, Shakopee, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, June 8 through Wednesday, June 10.
