Letter: Big thank-you to student leaders

As we consider Martin Luther King Jr.’s statement of “Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” the American Red Cross received the answer on Martin Luther King Day. More than 60 North Dakota State University student leaders representing campus organizations, fraternities and sororities dedicated more than six hours each in service to the Red Cross in Fargo. These future leaders completed significant projects that prepared our Red Cross building and resources for our heavy spring responses.

Thank you, NDSU student leaders, for thoroughly cleaning and organizing our certified kitchen where we prepare meals to support disaster responses, setting up our Disaster Operations Center so that we are ready for any large-scale disasters throughout the Red River Valley, and preparing our Red Cross warehouse to ensure all resources are available for mobilization.

Your professionalism and endless energy were true gifts to our organization. You inspired us with your servant hearts and helped us fulfill our Red Cross mission of turning compassion into action by extending care, shelter and hope to those in need.
