Eide Ford and Eide Chrysler were proud to take part in Giving Hearts Day 2022 to support The Bismarck Public Schools Foundation.
We know how important it is to aid our community in any way that we can. That’s why Eide committed to matching up to $8,000 to support Giving Hearts Day 2022. The focus of these funds were to assist struggling BPS students and their families through the BPS Family Assistance Fund.
At the end of the day, the campaign raised over $14,750 during Giving Hearts Day 2022!
“We know how important it is to be active in our community, and we enjoy supporting the Bismarck School System,” says Jesse Peterson, the dealer principal at Eide Chrysler and Eide Ford. “We are thankful that we could be a part of Giving Hearts Day 2022 with the BPS Foundation.”
“BPS social workers collaborate with community supports to assist our BPS student families. This fund is truly utilized as a safety net for those needs that are falling through the cracks,” BPSF Development Director Stacey Lang explains. “The BPS Foundation is thrilled to see the increase in donations to Giving Hearts Day charities this year. We know that the charities within our community work collaboratively to assist these families in need and that this collective mindset is what will move our community forward.”
The money raised during Giving Hearts Day 2022 can be utilized for a variety of different needs, ranging from toiletries to displaced families to assisting with a heat bill in the middle of winter.
The BPS Foundation also allocates resources to scholarships for students, grants for teachers and staff, and student hunger relief. The impact that the BPS Foundation has on those in their community is immense, and we are glad that we were able to participate in Giving Hearts Day 2022 to support our local community as well.
“The BPS Foundation would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to all private and public donors along with their match sponsor Eide Ford and Eide Chrysler that made this important fundraising day a success!”
We are thankful to be a part of such an important cause. The Bismarck-Mandan community has always been important to us, and that’s why Eide Ford and Eide Chrysler are always striving to be involved and support community organizations.
