West Fargo, ND – (October 5, 2022) – The Scheels Gives Back program awarded Liberty Middle School $1,500 to eliminate outstanding lunch balances that have accrued during this school year. More than 130 students will receive assistance with this donation.
Scheels donates between 8 and 10% of its profits annually to organizations in their local communities to create lasting change. Donations and sponsorships are allocated on a store-by-store basis, allowing each store to choose which organizations and events to support in their community. Scheels employees, Ashley Hill of Carrington, Laura Dahlstrom of Grand Forks, and Nathan Hilber of Detroit Lakes selected Liberty Middle School to receive this donation.
Liberty Principal Daniel Holder and Assistant Principal Steven Hay accepted the donation on behalf of the school. “This donation will help us eliminate current negative balances and cover additional needs while applications to the reduced lunch program are being processed.” says Hay. For individuals wishing to submit a donation toward students’ meal and/or milk payments, the West Fargo Public Schools Food Service Department has established a process through MySchoolBucks, an online payment system specific to school fees and expenses.
