GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - Your donation to the Northlands Rescue Mission will mean twice as much this month.

A Grand Forks couple, who chose to remain anonymous, is matching donations made to the mission up to $15,000 through the end of May.

Right now the mission has nearly 110 people staying there each night, which is a 300 percent increase in the past 10 years.

It costs nearly $100,000 a month to provide food, clothing, shelter, job assistance and medical treatment to residents at the shelter.
