Did you know giving back can boost your quality of life? Especially in older individuals, a majority of studies support the link between volunteering and having a more positive quality of life. A 2011 review of studies by three researchers found a positive association between older people’s quality of life and engagement in volunteering. Young or old, first-time volunteer or repeat giver of time, the RDO Caters Taters team appreciates all the energy that comes from giving back. Those who support the event do so as well, whether through the purchase of a potato, a raffle ticket, or a sponsorship. And speaking of those sponsors, they are a major reason RDO Caters Taters is successful in its mission to give back. Nilles Law Firm Established in the early 1900s, the Nilles Law Firm provides legal services in more than 10 areas of practice, including commercial law, commercial litigation, insurance law, and real estate. A division of the Nilles law Firm is Northern Title, a title company that provides complete closing and escrow services for all types of real estate transactions in North Dakota and Minnesota. Many of the attorneys have been at Nilles for decades and Nilles takes even more pride in the fact many staff have been with the Nilles team for 25 or more years. The firm’s attorneys and staff focus on providing services as members of a team. This philosophy trickles over into their community involvement, with everyone on the team playing an important role in Nilles’ commitment to giving back. The Nilles Law Firm is a member of Team Makers, the Chamber, Downtown Community Partnership, and Greater F-M Economic Development. As a company, Nilles also takes great pride in its sponsorship over many years of events like the YMCA Paul Howry Memorial Golf Tournament and, of course, RDO Caters Taters. On an individual level, Nilles Law Firm encourages its members to be involved in the community, particularly with organizations in which the member has an interest, if not a passion. The company engages its team members on Giving Hearts’ Day, encouraging them to vote for the charity that will benefit from Nilles’ contribution. Members also have volunteered for organizations that focus on numerous areas of the local community, including organizations that distribute scholarship funds to graduating high school seniors, organizations that provide support to the homeless population, and local theaters. It is important for Nilles Law Firm to support organizations that benefit numerous areas of the local community. That is one of the things that Nilles Attorney, Mark Hanson especially appreciates about being involved with RDO Caters Taters. A Special Meaning One of the things that makes RDO Caters Taters unique is that the event supports a new charity every year. On a personal level, Mark says has enjoyed the opportunity to learn about new charities through RDO Caters Taters, with BIO Girls having an extra-special meaning for him. “I was not familiar with BIO Girls but now, especially because my wife, Cathy and I are the parents of two daughters, I am looking forward to supporting an organization that aims to improve the self-esteem and encourage the empowerment of girls.” Mark adds that RDO Caters Taters’ support this year for BIO Girls is a good reminder and a challenge to the Nilles Law Firm and all Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo businesses to not rest on their laurels, but to consider expanding support to include as many segments of the community population as possible. “There are so many needs in our community,” he said. “It is great to highlight those different organizations and the important ways they are giving back to the community.” Everybody Wins with Giving Back While anyone can appreciate the numerous benefits of giving back, such as a quality of life boost, the Nilles team doesn’t do it for their own gain. They do it simply because they know it is the right thing to do. Of course, everyone who takes part in RDO Caters Taters does get a little something back, whether it be something as impactful as a better quality of life or something as simple as a warm, tasty potato in their belly. Best of all, BIO Girls gets 100 percent of every dollar to give back through its mission of improving self-esteem.
