Caroline Wintoniw is the director for Luther Village, and she says they're in a race against time, as they try to complete work before winter sets in.
"We are kind of up against the weather and the snow falling and staying for good," she agreed.
Still, Wintoniw says they're encouraged by the response to rebuilding efforts at Luther Village. Supporters of the church retreat have donated about $30,000 to repair damage from last month's storm.
"It's so encouraging to know people have been spreading the news about what has happened, donating and sending encouragement," she said Tuesday.
A delay in repairs until spring may only add to the bill, Wintoniw noted. The church retreat has been operating for 50 years.
