Thank you for giving with your heart

Published 6:24am Monday, February 24, 2014

As Freedom Resource Center enters its 25th year of serving people with disabilities in Southeast North Dakota and West Central Minnesota, we begin the year humbled at the outpouring of support we received during our third year of participation in Giving Hearts Day.

This will allow us to provide our quality services to help people with disabilities live more independently.

About 19 percent of the American population lives with some type of a disability. That translates to approximately 19,000 people in Fargo alone. The individuals we serve desire an equal opportunity in our communities.

They are our siblings, our children, our neighbors, and our friends.

We appreciate the support given to our organization from our donors, as well as the Dakota Medical Foundation and Impact Foundation. Giving Hearts Day has been a great benefit to our organization and the people we serve.
