Every neighborhood has that one person that everyone knows and loves, and no one can imagine how the area would exist without that special person.

In the Powderhorn Community of Minneapolis, that person is ‘Miss Linda’!

Unfortunately, Miss Linda thought she might have to move after 19 years in her neighborhood. She had been renting her house and the owners had decided to sell.

Miss Linda’s neighbors jumped into action. They convinced the owner of the house to go ahead and sell, but only to Miss Linda. Unfortunately, Miss Linda could not afford to buy the house. Her neighbors did not give up and donations started rolling in.
