Letter: Great work at Sandbag CentralA sincere thank you to all of our great students in Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo who dedicated time filling sandbags over the past 10 days. Our young people are incredible, have a tremendous work ethic and amazing positive attitudes.
Many of the Red Cross volunteers who spent time feeding sandbaggers commented how thankful and appreciative all of the students were throughout the day. Two West Fargo students even gave hugs to all the volunteers after eating their lunches.
We also want to recognize our school faculty, city and county personnel, as well as the firefighters. They were filling sandbags right along with the students every day. These men and women set such a strong example for our young people, showing them why volunteering is such a critical component to maintaining a strong community.
Heartfelt thanks to all. Your volunteer spirit and commitment to our communities are truly an inspiration!
