Orange Bag Event
May 1 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals is hosting their annual charity clothing and household item drive to support local organizations and families.
In the month of April, GGFYP members and volunteers will be distributing orange garbage bags to homes across Grand Forks.
On Saturday morning, May 1st, GGFYP members will return to each neighborhood and pick up the orange garbage bags for processing and distribution. Please keep all oversized or extra donations next to your orange bag so we know they are for donation.
Donations from community members not included in the selected neighborhoods can be dropped off at Lincoln Drive Park on May 1st from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.
Interested in volunteering for the event? Email our Community Involvement Chair, Dan, at email@example.com
Thank you to Grand Forks Park District for providing in-kind space at Lincoln Drive Park.
