Jeremiah Program promotes Wright to Events, Volunteer and Annual Fund Manager

FARGO, ND After serving for more than four years in both volunteer and employee roles, Whitney Wright has been promoted to events, volunteer and annual fund manager for Jeremiah Program Fargo-Moorhead. She began her service to Jeremiah Program as a volunteer four years ago assisting with child care and volunteer coordination for weekly empowerment classes as well as annual event planning and logistics.

She was appointed event & volunteer coordinator in April 2017. During her time with Jeremiah Program, she has led the development of a signature fundraising event that has exceeded expectations for giving and attendance two years in a row. In addition, the programs volunteer force has grown from 95 to more than 600 in less than two years. In her new role, Whitney will lead the management and implementation of the events and annual fund, including the strategies, tactics and initiatives to reach annual fundraising goals. Prior to joining Jeremiah Program, Whitney held office manager roles for Sandman Engineering and Sanford Health.

Jeremiah Program's newest campus Fargo-Moorhead opened in January 2018. It features 20 furnished apartments designed to support single mothers, who are required to work part time or volunteer, attend college full time, and work toward a career-track education while participating Jeremiah Programs weekly coaching and life skills classes. The ground floor of the campus also features a licensed early Child Development Center that can serve up to 52 children ages six weeks until starting kindergarten.
