Tufte Manor residents in Grand Forks are filling duffel bags for the Northlands Rescue Mission's "Bags of Hope". Residents filled the bags with various clothing items for the Mission. Monies were given by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to fund the project.

After the residents fill the bags they will personally deliver the bags to the resident of the NRM. Residents of Tufte Manor typically do not have many opportunities to give back to the community, and this project enables them to do just that.

"It's a good time of the year to be able to do this for the people that reside in our community that maybe have a little bit less than what we have," said Susan Hanson with Tufte Manor.

The bags will be delivered by on December 9th.
