View the signed Mayoral Proclamation for Giving Hearts Day
WHEREAS, The goals of Giving Hearts Day are to raise awareness for the charitable non-profit sector and its organizations in North Dakota and northwest Minnesota, to promote online giving, volunteerism and the donation of goods and to provide donors with the opportunity to multiply the results of their giving; and
WHEREAS, Giving Hearts Day is a powerful example of the private sector providing assistance to charitable, non-profit organizations that offer vital services to improve the quality of life for many members of our community; and
WHEREAS, The charitable, non-profit sector supports individuals and families with quality programs, materials and funds that promote, encourage and sustain independence and self-sufficiency; and
WHEREAS, In order to provide these benefits, charities need ongoing funds, volunteers and goods to continue providing long-term, sustainable services to our residents in need; and
WHEREAS, These charities have demonstrated a need for collaboration and resources, and have joined together for this 24-hour fundraising event dedicated to inspiring online donations for charities at GivingHeartsDay.org.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I, Dr. Timothy J. Mahoney, Mayor of the City of Fargo, North Dakota, do hereby proclaim February 8, 2024 to be
