- Farm Rescue is reporting that supporters on Thursday raised $28,324.12 for the North Dakota-based nonprofit, which is the
largest Giving Hearts Day contribution to date.
Bill Gross says in a press release that the record setting amount
comes at an important time for Farm Rescue as the organization
recently completed its busiest year ever.
Thursday was Giving Hearts Day, an online opportunity for donations of $10, up to $150,000 to be matched by the Dakota Medical Foundation, Impact Give Back Foundation and the Alex Stern Family Foundation.
2017, more than 125 farm and ranch families received assistance
through volunteer planting, haying, harvesting and hay hauling
efforts. Farm Rescue also assisted its 500th family in crisis since
operations first began in 2006.
