Join us on February 14th for Giving Hearts Day! Be part of a record-breaking fundraising phenomenon, where kind souls in both North Dakota and western Minnesota join forces to help local non-profits. It’s a 24-hour virtual fundraising event that’s one-of-a-kind, started by the Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation. We’re hoping donors sign on, click donate, and support Jeremiah Program at impactgiveback.org.
Dunn Bros Coffee is a huge part of helping us spread the word. If you drop by for a latte or other specialty drink, you’ll likely see a Jeremiah Program sticker on the top, asking you to remember us on Giving Hearts Day. It’s taking place at both Fargo locations, on 25th Street and 45th Street. Donate to help single moms on Giving Hearts Day, and you’ll get a coupon for ½ off a Dunn Bros hand-crafted, espresso-based beverage.
Amanda Wood, the manager at Dunn Bros said the team is “super fired up to help. Jeremiah Program is something we need in our area. We have programs in place, but still continue the vicious cycle of poverty. I know that firsthand.” The program hits home for Wood, a mom raising her 5-year-old son Braden on her own. When she first heard about the program, Wood said she started to cry. “Sometimes you really feel abandoned as a parent, and you want to make sure you’re doing the right thing. It’s important for people to rally around you.”
And the coffee shop is rallying around Jeremiah women, hoping customers share the love. Wood said “even if one in ten people I tell about the program can be as fired up as much as I am, and donate, whether it is $5 or $5,000, everything helps!”
