Valley City State University Pre-Professional Club Raises $500 for Hospice of the Red River Valley

The Valley City State University Pre-Professional Club donated $500 to Hospice of the Red River Valley, generated from proceeds of the Community Soup and Sandwich Feed held in Valley City on March 28. Through the generosity of local donors, their contribution will be matched for a total gift of $1,000. The students also earned nearly $1,000 for the club.

The Club will use the earnings to obtain study materials, attend meetings and provide support for educational and volunteer activities. The donation to Hospice will be used to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those in Valley City and surrounding communities.

“I am amazed and so appreciative of the support from these students,” said Deb Gemar, development officer with Hospice of the Red River Valley. “They’ve shown a real eagerness to gift back to their community. They should be very proud of themselves.”
