MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Hollywood actor and Minot (MY’-naht), N.D., native Josh Duhamel has been named honorary chairman of a fund set up for the city’s flood recovery.

In a statement, Duhamel said he grew up in Minot and his sister and her family lost their home to flooding from the Souris River. Duhamel says he would always consider the city home.

The fund will help Minot and the surrounding area with grants for construction materials, mortgage help, household items and other needs.

Duhamel stars in the film “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” which opens Wednesday.

Niki Carlson, a program director for the Minot Area Community Foundation, which established the fund, says Duhamel was in Moscow on Sunday promoting the film.
