Put Some ‘Ho, Ho, Ho’ In Your Holidays

The HBA of F-M’s annual holiday drive will benefit two organizations this year: the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch and the YWCA. We ask that you bring your donations and/or youth gifts directly to the HBA office by Dec. 13.

Here is what our Association is collecting from members:

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch

• New games appropriate for youth ages 12-18 (board games, playing cards, etc.) These games need not be wrapped. Gift bags are preferred.


• New or gently used and machine-washable winter outerwear items (adult-size M – 3XL coats as well as hats, gloves and mittens that are functional and warm), women’s deodorant, children’s Tylenol, ibuprofen and peanut butter.

Gifts for Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Residents

HBA of F-M invites members to come in, choose an ornament from the Christmas tree and spread the joy this season by helping make the holiday a little more special for a resident of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch. Each ornament lists the wishes of a boy or girl residing at the Ranch.

If you have additional questions, contact Tahra Doll at (701) 232-5846.

Thank you to Monica Hart and Meghan Dahnke, Monica Hart Interior Design, Inc., for decorating the tree this year.
