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 Event Center Exhibit Hall, with access through the southeast doors.

 

Saturday December 6, 2014


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

 

Monday December 22, 2014


Volunteers are needed to sort, stack, and count all donated and purchased food items at 8:00 a.m. Sorting and stacking should be complete by 10:30 a.m.

 

At 6:30 p.m. more volunteers are needed to pack baskets for the families. At 6:30 p.m., 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.

 

Tuesday December 23, 2014


Open Your Heart campaign loads and delivers baskets from 7:00 a.m. Volunteers are needed to stock perishable food items in food baskets and deliver them to the families. Starting at 6:30 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 delivering the meals start arriving while other volunteers load them with food. After the drivers deliver the food baskets, any undeliverable baskets are returned. 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 86th Open Your Heart campaign for December 2015 begins.

 

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

-Bob Werfald
