3rd Annual Community Shower
MINOT, ND – The 3rd annual Community Shower was a great success.  
 
“This year several businesses participated as drop-off locations.” says Danielle Rued, Campaign Coordinator. “They did a great job of getting the word out and making this a success.” 
 
The month long drive ended on June 18th with a collection event at the Dakota Square Mall with volunteers from Minot Young Professionals accepting donations. 
 
Rued was pleased with the generosity of the community, “We exceeded our goal and were able to distribute 11,160 diapers, along with numerous baby items and adult personal care items. 
 
Event sponsor Depend, provided a grant to purchase additional diapers and adult personal care items.
All items were delivered to the four local food panties and the four shelter programs in the community.
 
Recipients:
