92nd Annual Open Your Heart
December 17, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The 92nd consecutive annual Open Your Heart campaign for families in need in Bismarck and Burleigh County at Christmas is underway! The Legionnaires of Loyd Spetz Post No 1 of the American Legion have led this community supported Christmas charity for families in need in Bismarck and Burleigh County every year since our 1st campaign in December 1930. Open Your Heart helps people every year because of the thousands of volunteers and contributors who so faithfully work with us to make Christmas brighter for these families.
On Friday, December 17th at 8:00 a.m. in the Exhibit Hall D of the Bismarck Civic Center volunteers will sort all of the donated food and stack it with other purchased food on tables, and they will count the number of items per table. That evening the doors to the Exhibit Hall D will open at 6:30 p.m. and at 7:00 p.m. hundreds of volunteers will fill the baskets for each family.
We will be volunteering Friday December 17th from 6;30pm until packages are full. There are some additional opportunities to volunteer for this event if this day/time doesn’t work for you. Please wear your YP shirts or something festive!!
