Stepping Stones benefits from helpThank you to all who made our “personal care drive” and “stuff the truck” event such a success.
Because of your generosity in April, we were able to donate more than 300 pounds of shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. to the Stepping Stones Resource Center. SSRC is an arm of Fraser Ltd. and serves 14- to 22-year-olds at risk of being homeless.
During the stuff the truck event hosted by Luther Ford, we were able to fill three cube trucks to overflowing. It was a picture-perfect day (May 12) and the cars, trucks and trailers lined up to donate gently used furniture, toys, sporting goods – everything but a kitchen sink. At times, we had many vehicles in line waiting to donate. The staff from The Family Life Thrift Store were thrilled with the amount of donations.
A special thanks to Fargo Hornbacher’s and Fargo Holiday Inn for your generous donations to the personal care drive.
To Luther Ford and Radio Lite 97.9, thank you for partnering with us to help our community by collecting gently used items.
Watch for our drive in April 2013 and stuff the truck event in May 2013.
