Hornbacher’s donated more than $2,700 to The Village Family Service Center in Grand Forks, N.D. A check presentation ceremony was held May 1 at the Hornbacher’s store at 2771 32nd Ave. S., Grand Forks.

Hornbacher's staff presents check to Doug Vang and Luke Klefstad of The Village.

Hornbacher’s sold paper bowling pins for $1 from Feb. 27 through March 7 at all its stores as part of the Bowl for Kids’ Sake campaign. That effort raised a total of $30,908.

“Each year, we are more amazed at the generosity of our community and the hard work of our associates who help raise money for such an important cause in our area,” said Hornbacher’s President Matt Leiseth.

The $2,709 donated at the Grand Forks Hornbacher’s will support The Village’s Girls 360º Group and children’s services here. Village counselors in Grand Forks provide outpatient counseling and in-home therapy to families, are trained in several specialty therapies for children, and have unique expertise in working with 0- to 5-year-olds. Girls 360º educates teens on a full spectrum (360 degrees) of topics relevant to their life, and is targeted toward 13- to 17-year-old girls with low self-confidence and low self-esteem.

Founded in 1951, Hornbacher’s operates eight grocery stores and employs over 1,000 people in the Fargo-Moorhead and Grand Forks areas. Hornbacher’s is committed to the community through support of many civic, educational, arts and non-profit organizations.

The Village has offices in 15 communities across North Dakota and Minnesota, and serves tens of thousands of people each year through a variety of services, including mental health counseling, addiction recovery, financial counseling, adoption services, pregnancy counseling, mentoring and more.
