The following is from a recent story in the Redwood Falls (MN) Gazette.
Who is blessed more – those who give or those who receive? If one were to ask Clara Friese that question, the answer would be simple. Being able to give to others in need provides far greater blessing. Friese experienced that blessing again recently when she and a group of local individuals took truckloads of donated items to the Crow Creek reservation in South Dakota.
…Friese said more than 80 bikes were donated to the people of Crow Creek through the collection. Students from the United National Indian Tribal Youth (UNITY) group at Redwood Valley spent a lot of time helping load items during the local collection, and they also took the initiative to pump up bike tires and make sure the bikes all worked. “They were riding them all over the Tersteeg’s parking lot,” said Friese with a smile.
