The holiday season is rapidly approaching which means it's time to do some good in the Bismarck-Mandan community with the 11th Annual 96 Hours of Caring. 

It’s hard to believe, but one in twelve North Dakotan’s will seek food assistance this time of year, not to mention the hundreds that go homeless every single day. To do our part, Townsquare Media is teaming up with Missouri Slope Areawide United Way for ’96 Hours of Caring’ to raise awareness and donations for 8 local organizations.

Feel free to drop off donations now at Townsquare Media Studios, 4303 Memorial Highway on the Strip in Mandan.

Beginning November 1st through the 4th, the stations of Townsquare Media will be broadcasting live and collecting items for those in need. We're doing things a little different this year and will be at Cashwise Foods all four days. Cashwise will have special bags for $6 with items to donate. We will also have lists on hand of what we're looking for.

We wouldn't be able to do it without our day sponsors:

  1. Dakota Community Bank & Trust - November 2nd Sponsor
  2. American Family Insurance - November 3rd Sponsor
  3. Carpet World - November 4th Sponsor.

An extended thank you to our other sponsors at Edgewood Vista - Bismarck, Missouri Valley Petroleum, Little Caesars Pizza and Go Mini's.

You can help make a person in need's holiday season. 96 Hours of Caring will benefit the following organizations:

100% of what is collected is paid forward, so please get involved in the 11th annual ’96 Hours of Caring!’
