The situation in Izumi City
Bloomington Sister City Organization (BSCO) has received several inquires regarding the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We have been in contact with the officials at the City of Izumi, our sister city. We have been assured that all is well. The disaster did not affect the region surrounding Izumi City. We join our friends in Izumi City in hoping for the best for their fellow countrymen affected by the catastrophe.

How you can help the greater devastation in Japan
BSCO has also received several questions on how individuals can help support the relief effort in Japan. In order to direct interested individuals to the most up-to-date resources BSCO is linking up with the Japan American Society of Minnesota (JASM) who lists several organizations accepting donations. JASM also lists information for several fund raisers.

Thank you.
