Minnesota Nice is alive and well and more on brand than ever, because only in our state is a fish house a valuable tool in fighting a pandemic.

This isn't the first Ice Castle the owner of Ice Castle Fish Houses Montivideo has donated. He has also given one to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in the past. In a statement to WCCO he said:

Montevideo community made the company what it is today, and this was the company’s way of giving back.

Ice fishing houses: not just for hanging out on frozen lakes. Neighbors helping out where they can, that's what it's all about right now.
