The Abused Adult Resource Center (AARC) announced the donation of a new cargo van has been donated by the Hopeline Verizon program. The van will aid the nonprofit agency's efforts in operating its unique Seeds of Hope Thrift & Gift Store that helps in serving domestic victims in south-central North Dakota.
The keys to the 2014 Chevrolet cargo van were presented this week to AARC’s executive director Diane Zainhofsky by Cary Degenstein during the AARC's annual luncheon meeting of PULSE, a community group focused on violence prevention in the Bismarck-Mandan area.
“We are grateful to Verizon for the company's generosity and commitment to preventing domestic violence both in North Dakota and across the country,” Zainhofsky said. “We are thrilled to have a new van to provide needed transportation services for our programs.”
The Seeds of Hope Thrift & Gift Store, 510 Main Street, generates about 21 percent of the agency's overall revenue.
