'Bridging Poverty' in the Red Wing community
Many people in the Red Wing area don't realize poverty is an issue here, according to the organizers of an upcoming community forum.
"We want to tell people it's real, it's happening here and it's getting bigger," said Maureen Nelson of the United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha and Pierce Counties.
And they also want to find out what can be done about it.
"How does the community wrap around them and support them?" Nelson said of the people struggling with poverty.
