Denny's Bucks For Bags
Program Summary for the 2013 Flood
Non-profit organizations can earn “Denny Bucks” from the City of Fargo for donated volunteer hours in the organization’s name.
To do so, volunteers will need to designate which organization they would like to donate their Denny’s Bucks to when they fill out the volunteer intake form at the check-in sites. The City will contribute $75 to qualified organizations for every 100-hours of sandbag filling. Organizations that contribute 500-hours or more will receive a $50 bonus.
