Walmart—Minot granted $2,000 to Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, through the Community Grant Program. The funds received will be used to purchase new windows for the cottages on the Minot campus, replacing the windows that are original to the cottages.
At the Ranch, we strive to create an inviting and home-like atmosphere for our children and the purchase of new windows will contribute to that type of environment. They will ensure that the heat stays in the building to warm the children in the winter and that the cool air stays in during the summer to keep them cool.
Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is a Christian residential treatment and educational center for children and their families. They help the most troubled, complicated and amazing kids by providing best-in-class psychiatric therapy and trauma-informed care, where they look kids in the eye, walk with them, and help them become their best selves. In addition to Residential Treatment Facilities in Fargo, Bismarck, and Minot, the Ranch provides Outpatient Psychiatric and Psychological Services, and Spiritual Life Programs. Their on-campus school, Dakota Memorial School (DMS), provides a personalized education for kids who have psychiatric, behavioral and trauma issues.
Together, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation provide more than $1 billion in cash and in-kind to support programs that align with their philanthropic priorities. They focus on areas where they can do the most good - combining the unique strengths of the business alongside their philanthropy. Today, Walmart.org, through the combined philanthropic efforts of both Walmart and the Walmart Foundation, creates opportunities for people to live better every day.
