Annual Horn of Plenty hits the spot

Hungering to help out a good cause? The Horn of Plenty has been hitting the spot for decades, raising money to provide holiday meals to local families.

It’s a time-tested and proven program that lifts spirits for givers as well as recipients.

Once again, the Trinity Health Foundation has partnered with KHRT radio’s Horn of Plenty to put turkeys and other fare on the tables of needy families this holiday season. This will be the sixth year of the partnership.

The Horn of Plenty was started by a wonderful man, Dick Leavitt of KHRT years ago and its impact – as well as the need for it – have only grown over the years.

This year’s goal is to raise $6,750 – enough to purchase turkeys for 450 families or gift boxes for 150 families. Donating $15 will put a turkey on the table for one area family while a $45 contribution will pay for an entire gift box.

To be sure, Trinity staff, volunteers and Foundation board members will contribute in a large way to the drive, but the entire community is asked to also help out.

The food items will be distributed along with gift boxes to families in the community just before Christmas.

The drive runs until Dec. 1. People are welcome to make cash donations in one of several ways. They can go to, call 857-5432 or 857-2430, mail a gift to Trinity Health Foundation, PO Box 5020, Minot, ND 58702-5020 or drop off a donation at the Trinity Health Foundation office located on the second floor of Trinity Hospital – St. Joseph’s, 407 3rd Street SE, Minot.

The involvement of Trinity Foundation and Trinity Health employees these past six years has been an expression of generosity that should not go unnoticed. Well done, and thanks for sharing and setting such a positive example.
