84th annual Open Your Heart

The “Open Your Heart” campaign is sponsored by the American Legion Lloyd Spetz Post Number 1 and KFYR 550 AM Radio. The “Open Your Heart” campaign is the longest and most successful Christmas charity in the United States!

WHAT IS NEEDED?

 

Non-perishable food items; volunteers to sort, stack and count all donated food items and deliver food baskets; cash donations. All the money and non-perishable food items help the needy families in Bismarck and Burleigh County.

 

The activity schedule for this year — all events take place in the Bismarck Civic Center Exhibit Hall, with access through the southeast doors.

 

December 2-19, 2013


Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at Bismarck Public Schools.

 

Saturday December 7, 2013


KFYR 550 AM Radio will kick off this year's campaign with  a 12-hour broadcast starting at 6:00 a.m. in the J.C. Penny Courtyard at the Kirkwood Mall, accepting cash donations and non-perishable food items.

 

Friday December 20, 2013


Volunteers are needed to sort, stack, and count all donated and purchased food items at 8:00 a.m. in the Civic Center Exhibit Hall. Sorting and stacking should be complete by 10 a.m.

 

At 7:00 p.m. more volunteers are needed to pack baskets for the families. At 6:30 p.m., in the main part of the Exhibit Hall, tables are set up, each with a particular food item. Members of motorcycle clubs fill tote boxes with staples and volunteers take food baskets for each family. At 7 p.m., more volunteers are needed pack baskets for the families. The volunteers move around the tables and food items are placed in the baskets based on the number of members in each family. After that is complete, by about 8:30 p.m., Boy Scouts and others take down the tables and sweep up.

 

Saturday December 21, 2013


Open Your Heart campaign loads and delivers baskets from 7:30 a.m. at the Civic Center Exhibit Hall. Volunteers are needed to stock perishable food items in food baskets and deliver them to the families. Starting at 7 a.m., Dan’s Supermarkets, Dean’s Foods and Garske Produce deliver turkeys, chickens, bread, milk and cole slaw, and volunteers help load vehicles. At 7:30 a.m., volunteers drive their vehicles into the Exhibit Hall while other volunteers load them with food. After the drivers deliver the food baskets, any undeliverable baskets are returned to the Exhibit Hall. Some last-minute families will get the undeliverable baskets, with the rest being delivered to the Salvation Army. By 10 a.m., the work is basically done and planning for the 85th Open Your Heart campaign for December 2014 begins.

 

"They don't have to sign up (to help). Just show up and we'll put you to work."

-Bob Werfald
