Hope Village Taco Johns

Posted: Updated:

$27,041.71.

That's how much Taco Johns raised today --- with the help of the community --- to continue flood recovery in Minot.

Every penny earned at all three Taco Johns' locations in Minot today is being donated to Hope Village.

Since the 2011 flood, Hope Village has been providing volunteer housing, meals, and fellowship.

Taco Johns of Minot took the idea of partnering with Hope Village, and ran with it.

(Steve Carbno, Hope Village Coordinator) "This is the biggest thing I've ever seen in 25 years. We have folks that will give a portion of proceeds of the sale of one item. For them to give us 8 hours of one hundred percent of their sales is huge."

(Megan Grundstrom, Director of Marketing, Preferred Restaurant Group) "It feels incredible. You know, really it feels like the least we can do as a company for our customers in Minot. It's the least we can do."

There was no specific goal for money raised today, they just hoped to write the biggest check possible to Hope Village.

All three Taco Johns locations in Minot today were packed with customers ready to come together to help our community.

Along with paying for the food itself, many large donations were made by Minot citizens.

(Steve Carbno, Hope Village Coordinator) "To see what this community has done to pull itself up, the amount of support that they have shown Hope Village, all we have to do is ask and the need is met. And that's a great peace for us."

(Jennifer Lade, Flood Survivor) "It's just a great thing to do for people that are still not in their homes, or still need help getting there. We are back in our home so we are very fortunate, so we just want to help those that are still not back in their homes and this is one way to do it and I'm so grateful for Taco Johns and Hope Village for partnering for this."

Hope Village will be using the money to hire a chef for volunteers this summer.
