With the holiday season fast approaching, now is the time for the community to come together and help those who are less fortunate. As hard as it is to hear, one in twelve North Dakotans will seek food assistance and hundreds go homeless every day.

For the 9th year, Townsquare Media is teaming up with Missouri Slope Areawide United Way for '96 Hours of Caring' to raise awareness and donations for 8 local charitable organizations. Right now, you can drop off any items or donations at any local American Family Insurance office or at the Townsquare Media studios located at 4303 Memorial Highway on the Strip in Mandan.

96 Hours has collected more than 6,000 pounds of food the last two years!
