JAMESTOWN - 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.

Founder 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. 

In 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.
