Donation Station Challenge Grant Returns

We are excited to announce our 2nd Annual Food Pantry Challenge Grant. Area organizations are invited to utilize the Donation Station in the coming months to collect items and stock area food pantries for a chance to win additional grant dollars for the food pantry of their choosing.

 

Participating organizations are asked to set a goal of collecting 1,000 pounds or more of food during a single collection drive for a designated food pantry. If successful, that organization’s designated food pantry will also receive a $500 grant from our Arnold I. Besserud Fund. As an extra incentive, the organization with the most pounds collected from a single event, will get an additional $1,000 to be sent to the pantry of their choosing.

 

This is the second year that we are offering the challenge grant. Last year, 9 organizations participated, collecting over 8,000 pounds of food. A total of $3,000 in grant money was distributed because of the challenge grant’s success.

 

This year’s challenge grant will run from September 1st 2018 – February 28th 2019. Food collection events must take place within this time frame and The Donation Station must be utilized for the event. Eligible Minot food pantries include Our Lady of Grace, The Lord’s Cupboard and Salvation Army. Rural communities wanting to participate will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please contact us at 852-0646 for more information or to get the Donation Station booked for your event!
