Meg Jones’ longtime volunteerism at Knute Nelson began with providing manicures to residents.
“My friend invited me to do manicures for the residents and they were very excited about getting their nails done, which was quite a rewarding experience,” Meg said. “Then I was asked if I’d be interested in making memory boards, and it grew from there to many other projects.”
