GRAND FORKS, N.D. (June 20, 2012) – The Minn-Kota Region of the American Red Cross received a donation of $23,408 from the Hugo’s Family Marketplace that was a combination of a generous corporate support and customer giving program in April. The gift will help the Red Cross support emergency programs and mission related services.
Representatives from the American Red Cross accepted a check from Hugo’s on Wednesday, June 20 at 10:30 a.m. in Grand Forks at Hugo’s Corporate Offices.
Hugo’s, a longtime partner of the Minn-Kota Region, has fundraised over $20,000 in each of the past three years during their customer giving program, totaling over $68,000.
Hugo’s was recognized as one of the top business partners in Jamestown, by the American Red Cross Buffalo Valley Chapter.
The store in Jamestown also donated proceeds from a steak feed on June 15, in the amount of $1475. Over 500 people were served.
In the Minn-Kota Region last year, Red Cross volunteers responded to a disaster every 19 hours, providing shelter, clothing, food, bedding and comfort.
