With the Covid 19 pandemic Cares for Cancer cannot hold their fundraisers during past year and into next year. Cares uses the money raised to help families, within a 40 mile radius of Hankinson, with a major medical problem and need financial help for expenses that insurance will not pay for. The budget for this one program is $60,000 per year. Hospice, Children’s Hospitals, Caring Bridge and Individual Medical Benefits are other areas that Cares helps in with the other funds raised. Cares is %100 volunteers so all funds go to programs.
Cares is running low on funds to keep the granting program to families going. I am asking if you can help by donation of grain and have a check written to Cares for Cancer. You will receive a receipt of donation from Cares, a 5013c3 organization making your donations deductible. I have donated 500 bushels of soybeans to cover the month of December. My goal is to make sure the program can maintain for the next 12 months.
Haul donation in and have the check written out to Cares for Cancer or have an advance on grain sold already written to the same. Then send the check to me and I will make sure your receipt is sent to you. Give me the name and address of donor. This is an easy way to help neighbors out in a time of need and it shows how farmers can be supportive of a wonderful cause.
Do whatever amount you can. Donating is the important part. Goal is $80,000.
