Donation to Hope Village

Posted: Updated:

It was a day that will go down in the record books for one of the biggest fast food chains around...and that means big things for the operation working to rebuild homes in the flooded valley.

Saturday in Minot at the South Broadway Taco John's was the biggest single day ever for a Taco John's location -- nationwide.

And Hope Village in Minot was the reason.

For much of this past Saturday, all sales from the three Taco John's locations in Minot went directly to Hope Village.

And what a total it was.

Tuesday morning, the ownership group presented Hope Village with a check for nearly 30 thousand dollars.

It will more than fund a position that is needed to keep the hundreds of volunteers ready for work...

(Steve Carbno - Hope Village Coordinator) "Well beyond anything that we expected and the great piece of it is that we identified a need and Taco Johns stepped up and the city stepped up. The people of Minot did a wonderful job. We not only will be able to fund our salary for our food services but we will be able to buy some groceries as well."

Total sales were about 27 thousand...but with other donations made by customers, the total ran to nearly 30 thousand dollars.
