It provides assistance for students attending accredited post-secondary or vocational education and training institutions. Hill’s charitable pledge was made possible by the 2018 outreach of her new children’s holiday book, “The Giving Sack.” For more information visit Pictured are, from left, Holly Coates (UMFS), Hill and Ralph Branch (UMFS).
