FARGO — People are getting down at a hoedown to help fight homelessness.

Sunday, Sept. 20, is the 3rd annual Down Home Hoedown to help raise money for and continue their efforts to help families.

Down Home is a non-profit that helps transition families from homelessness. They collect things for families, like blankets, furnishings, and even games for kids,

"It's a great way to support Down Homes program we really are helping people in our community that are in a position to better their lives that have now been able to to secure and afford housing, but they just can't furnish and decorate." says organizer Chris Welsand.

The hoedown will be held Sunday, Sept. 20, at The Pines in Davenport, N.D. In previous years they have raised upwards of $50,000 at the event.
