Media Advisory: Democratic-NPL Day of Service and Inauguration Schedule

BISMARCK, ND — The North Dakota Democratic-NPL is partnering with the Presidential Inauguration Committee (PIC) to host service events on the National Day of Service. This day, celebrated on January 18, 2021, is a day to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and to give back to our communities.

The Dem-NPL is hosting a statewide “Virtual Food Drive” to raise funds for the Great Plains Food Bank and is writing and distributing Notes of Gratitude to frontline workers across North Dakota.

From Democratic-NPL Chairwoman Kylie Oversen:

“We know that the past year has been difficult for many residents in our state and we wanted to find opportunities to lift that burden, even in a small way. The Dem-NPL invites North Dakotans of all political stripes to participate and give back to their communities.” 

North Dakotans who are interested in participating in the Day of Service can donate to the Virtual Food Drive at this link, or sign up to send or receive Notes of Gratitude by following this link.
