Thank you North Dakota Community Foundation for awarding us with $4000 from the Minot Community Endowment Fund!!
This money is going towards our Helping Hand program, which allows us to help our residents with transportation, medical, educational and rental expenses. The Helping Hand program makes a HUGE difference in how we can give the women we serve that extra push towards self-sufficiency, and it would not exist without generous grantors like NDCF!
A BIG thank you to the Student Nurse Organization (SNO) from Dakota College at Bottineau for holding a clothing and household item drive for the YWCA!
We want to thank the practical nursing students and the Associate Degree students too - they held a root beer float, so that they could give us a monetary donation along with the donated items! THANK YOU!!
We appreciate your generosity and for finding time away from your studies to organize this - we would not exist without organizations like yours!
Thank you to the U.S. Bank Foundation for granting us money to assist with operating support at our shelter!
