Swanson Health Products is hosting a donation “drop-off” location for the youth-driven food drive, FILL THE DOME 2009. The charity is collecting non-perishable food, monetary donations and signatures to raise awareness for hunger. FILL THE DOME 2009 benefits local and regional food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and emergency shelters.
Fargo, ND (Vocus) November 12, 2009—It has been eight short months since the floor of the Fargodome was filled with sandbags. Approximately 2.5 million sandbags were hand-filled on the floor of the Fargodome and used to fight the flooding Red River in the spring of 2009. This holiday season, the floor of the Fargodome will be host to another community outreach event—FILL THE DOME 2009.
FILL THE DOME 2009, a youth-driven food drive, has a goal to fill the Fargodome floor (80,000 square feet) with 75 tons of food, $75,000 in donations and 7,500 petition signatures to raise awareness for hunger. The donations are redistributed to a network of 230 food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and other charitable feeding programs operating in 85 different communities. For every dollar donated, the food bank can distribute $11 worth of nutritious food to those in need.
To achieve this ambitious goal, an on-going competition has regional students ranging from elementary schools to colleges, collecting canned goods, money and signatures for the hungry. Swanson Health Products is hosting a “drop-off” location for food and/or monetary donations at the retail location at 109 Broadway North, Fargo, ND on behalf of the Customer Service class at Rasmussen College, Fargo, North Dakota.
