Why do you volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley?
I think it’s a wonderful mission! Hospice is a wonderful service for when people are in need. Fifteen years ago when I moved to Fargo, I was looking for a volunteer opportunity. Hospice helped us through a death in the family, and I saw in the paper that Hospice was opening a thrift store called Heirlooms, and I decided to volunteer.
