Giving Hearts Day raises nearly $125K for N.D. Salvation Army
It’s the greatest nonprofit fundraising day of the year in North Dakota and for the second year in a row, all six Salvation Army locations in the state participated in Giving Hearts Day on Thursday, Feb. 9. It resulted in donations of $124,240.09 to The Salvation Army locations across North Dakota.
By the numbers
Every dollar donated will be used to fund vital Salvation Army services, like the Pathway of Hope program (related story and video), in six North Dakota cities and their surrounding communities. These services include food programs, rent and utility assistance, emergency lodging, disaster support, emotional and spiritual care, seasonal assistance and much more.
Here’s how much was raised for each of our North Dakota Salvation Army locations:
- Bismarck – $14,523.64
- Fargo – $57,091.45
- Grand Forks – $13,745
- Jamestown – $25,515
- Minot – $6,095
- Williston – $7,270
In total, people donated $10,614,115 to more than 300 hundred participating nonprofits on this one day celebration of giving. The total shattered last year’s previous record of raising more than $8 million.
