As far as Daniel Edward Fitzgibbons is concerned, family has always occupied a prominent role in his life, from the time he was the youngest of five children growing up in Fargo, where he attended grade school and high school. In high school, Mr. Fitzgibbons was a very busy student, becoming involved in a singing group and a key club at the same time he played for his high school football and golf teams, as well as intramural hockey. That is why he has such a commitment to community; it has been part of who he is since he was one of five Fitzgibbons children growing up in Fargo, North Dakota.
More than anything, Daniel Edward Fitzgibbons loves his community. He loved where he grew up so much, he even started college close to home in North Dakota, and only transferred just over the state line, to Moorehead State in Minnesota, so he could graduate and get the degree he wanted. Sometime later, job opportunities led him to the Twin Cities, where he is now married and has two children.
With a strong commitment to his community, Daniel Edward Fitzgibbons tries to give back in every way possible. One example comes with Dan’s work with Dress for Success Twin Cities, which has a mission to increase women’s economic independence of women through empowerment. That charity supplies women with the work clothing they need to get a good job. Daniel Edward Fitzgibbons also works with several non-profits that help the poor and homeless in the Twin Cities region. One of his favorites is Bridging, which provides those transitioning out of homelessness with basic household items. He also does a lot of work with Loaves and Fishes, a program that serves up nearly a half million nutritious, hot meals to those who need them.
