Salvation Army Fergus Falls Receives “Magical” $10,000 Donation from local organizations

Apr 30, 2020

Question: How does one dollar magically become four? Answer: When the Fergus Falls Noon Rotary Club donates to The Salvation Army and Security State Bank matches the gift.

Earlier this week, the Fergus Falls Noon Rotary Club voted to make a $2,500 gift to The Salvation Army to help with ongoing efforts to provide relief to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Fergus Falls. But something magical happened—individual members of the Noon Rotary Club decided to make personal gifts of their own to match the original $2,500, bringing the total to $5,000.

“That in and of itself is an extremely generous gesture, and we’re so grateful to have the support of the Noon Rotary, especially during these challenging times,” said Lt. Anthony Nordan, leader of The Salvation Army service center in Fergus Falls. “But because of the generous match gift recently made by Security State Bank, that gift is now doubled to $10,000!”

Nordan also pointed out that this donation will specifically be used by the Fergus Falls Salvation Army to help those in Otter Tail County in need of assistance.

“We can’t say enough about the work being done by our local Salvation Army, and we’re proud to be able to provide support for their efforts,” said president of the Noon Rotary Club in Fergus Falls. “I would encourage other companies and organizations to join in raising needed funds to help those impacted by this crisis.”
