This is how I give back
Each weekday you can find Arge Laddusaw volunteering at the Emergency Food Pantry in Fargo, a partner agency of the Great Plains Food Bank. Forced into retirement due to health reasons and with a Social Security and SNAP payment that only takes him so far, Arge also visits the Emergency Food Pantry to receive needed food assistance. Spending time volunteering is his way of giving back.
