Hope Village Raising Funds

Posted: Updated:

Napoleon is credited with saying: "an army moves with its stomach."

Hope Village Coordinator Steve Carbno says that's also true for an army of volunteers.

Hope Village meals were provided by a Southern Baptist partnership last summer, but after Hurricane Sandy, Hope Village needs to hire a chef this year.

That's where YOUR stomach comes in.

Taco John's in Minot has planned a big fundraiser to help out set for tomorrow.

ALL the sales from 11-7 at all three Taco John's Minot locations will be donated to Hope Village.

Hope Village will in turn use those funds to pay the chef's salary this summer.

Carbno says providing meals for volunteers is an important part of the recovery process.

(Steve Carbno, Hope Village Coordinator) "These guys are working hard, they expend a lot of energy. So in the morning a hardy breakfast gets them started and to be able to sit down at the end of the day to have a meal together and look at what we've done collectively in the community is a great thing."

Again, Taco Johns is donating sales -- that's every penny you pay -- for the work at Hope Village.

That's tomorrow from 11-7 at all three Taco Johns locations in Minot.
