Best Nonprofit Organization: Fix It Forward Ministry
Location: Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo
How does it feel to win?
“We feel the love from our community in their consistent and growing support for our nonprofit,” Owner Matthew Carlson said. “We are a small organization trying to make a big impact, and we rely on a lot of support from the community, and they never let us down. This is one more way that they continue to support us and our mission.”
What's the most rewarding part of your mission?
“While it is always exciting to see someone drive off in their donated or repaired vehicle, the most rewarding part is when we occasionally run into them years later and get to hear how much better their situation is, partly due to having access to reliable transportation,” Carlson said.
How can people best help your organization?
“Currently our biggest limitation is volunteers. Anyone who is interested in coming and getting involved at some level would make the biggest impact,” Carlson said.
