Flood gifts

A Duluth resident affected by June’s flooding says thanks to the unknown benefactor who recently dropped off two gift cards.

Carlette “Candy” Baker received an envelope Saturday bearing the message, “Warmest wishes to Tischer Creek flood survivors. All the best in 2013.”

Inside were a $50 gift card for groceries and a $100 Target gift card.

“I think it was very kind and thoughtful,” Baker said. “I am a flood survivor; according to the city, I lost $40,000 in the value of my house” because of the flooding.

Baker said she’s repairing flood damage bit by bit as she can.
