NDSU students plan benefit for homeless shelter

FARGO – Some North Dakota State University freshmen are raising money to buy a shed and enclosed trailer for Churches United for the Homeless.

The trailer will be used to collect donated items and help move families into new homes, said Kyle Giermann, one of the students involved in the project. The Moorhead homeless shelter currently has a small flat trailer in poor condition, he said.

The shed will be used for storage.

“They are really big into recycling and already have a full basement and a full shed so they asked us to provide more storage space for them,” Giermann said.

The team of six students organizing the fundraiser is part of an NDSU leadership class. They call themselves The Wolf Pack. Their goal is to raise more than $4,000 for Churches United.

As part of their fundraising efforts, The Wolf Pack is planning a pancake breakfast and silent auction, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Hope Lutheran Church’s north campus, 2900 Broadway in Fargo.

The cost is $5 per person or $20 for a family of four or more.
