Being part of the community is very important to Sandy’s Donuts. So much so that we have made it one of our core values.
Every night we end our day by boxing up all our leftover donuts at both locations. These donuts will be delivered to shelters and non-profits the next day. Places like the New Life Center, Ronald McDonald Houses, Salvation Army, Churches United, YWCA Shelter, Great Plains Food Bank and many others. This has been a wonderful blessing to so many people.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
“We start fresh every night making donuts for the next day. All of our leftovers are boxed up and delivered to shelters and non profits in the community.”
Sandy’s Donut Run
Every year around the first weekend in November we have the now famous Sandy’s Donut Run.
The run is organized and managed by Go Far Events – A Sports Event Management Company based in West Fargo, ND and just happens to be across the street from Sandy’s.
We are expecting a great crowd for this falls 4th run. Last year we had around 700 runners and walkers for our 5K and 10K.
It is a very fun event with the incredible Donut First Aid Station where you can get a donut and a cup of coffee. Eating your donut in the specified zone will give you a minute off your time.
Of course at the end of the race we celebrate with more donuts and more coffee. Come out this fall and enjoy one of the year’s lasts runs thru wonderful West Fargo. All profits from the event are donated to the New Life Center. A shelter that has been helping the homeless and hurting go from merely surviving to truly thriving since 1902.

Giving Hearts Day
Sandy’s partners with Jail Chaplains for this annual Day of Giving. Jail Chaplains is a nonprofit that works directly with the 7000 inmates that pass thru the Cass County Jail every year. Bible Studies, individual counseling, faith-based chemical dependency programs and mentoring are just a few of the things offered by Jail Chaplains.
Every Tuesday we drop off donuts for the men’s Bible study but the big event happens in February on Giving Hearts Day. We make as many Red Velvet Donuts as we can on this day and donate $2 for every donut sold. Now the donuts are sold for just over a dollar so Sandy’s is chipping in the rest. In 2015 we made and sold 1800 Red Velvet Donuts, donating $3600 to Jail Chaplains.
National Donut Day
This is one crazy day! We partner with the Salvation Army of Fargo on this day. They are a perfect fit since National Donut Day started with them many years ago.
Check out our story in the Fargo Forum here!
Sandy’s starts out by donating over 1000 Donut Girl Donuts that the Salvation Army gives out to the public and to places that have helped them throughout the year. Now that is just the tip of the ice berg on donuts made. In 2015 we made and sold out 15,000 donuts. Donating $1 for every dozen donuts sold. If you are planning on donuts for this day please order in advance or come early because they fly off the shelves.
