May Day Baskets Delivered to the Jeremiah Program

May Day Baskets Delivered to the Jeremiah Program

The Jeremiah Program believes the pervasive and systemic impacts of poverty can be disrupted. They are committed to breaking down barriers to education, housing, and childcare for single mothers and their children. With a goal to disrupt and end the cycle of generational poverty, the Jeremiah Program in Fargo, ND has a 20-unit housing campus for qualified families experiencing poverty. The campus includes an on-site child development center with capacity to serve 52 children.


In 2021, 115 moms and their children were served by the Jeremiah Program in Fargo with projected growth for 2022. Mothers in the program must be enrolled in school and maintain a minimum GPA requirement. As a result, the average income of a single mother at the Jeremiah Program is just $9,962. 


At the beginning of May, the Goldmark Human Resources Team assembled 52 May Day baskets for children aged 2 - 8 years old. The baskets contained a variety of items including coloring books, crayons, pop fidget toys, temporary tattoos, bubbles, and healthy snacks. Each child received a basket in an effort to make each one feel special.


The baskets were delivered while school was in session at the campus. Teachers allowed the kids to take a break and pick out a basket of their choosing. One young boy ran over to pick out a blue basket and paw patrol coloring book, and asked with excitement, "Is this just for me? Do I get to keep it all for myself?" Our team was thrilled to see the reaction from the children and staff at the Jeremiah Program.

Goldmark prioritizes giving back to our community and organizations like the Jeremiah Program. Learn more about the Jeremiah Program and the work they are doing in the communities we serve.
