FARGO—The non-profit YouthWorks is getting a much needed boost.

A local women's organization, "The Power of 100", donated $14,400 to the charity.

The idea behind the Power of 100 is helping to use the "power of numbers" to do good in the world.

Every few months, they raise money to help a local charity.

YouthWorks says the money will go to help pay off its remodeling, and to provide a safer place for homeless and runaway youth throughout North Dakota.

"What's so great - I mean every charity is deserving, but these have been small charities that this has been game-changing for them in general. It's been a lot of fun to watch them grow, the ones that have received the money already." Sandra Buchholz of Power of 100 tells us.

Youthworks has been open in Fargo since 1991.
