Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Volunteers got their hands dirty at Atomic Coffee, potting plants for abortion patients.

"Plants for Patients" is an organization that gives a small plant and note of support to women who have had abortions. The program aims to show compassion and kindness, and break down social stigmas.

Today, they held a planting party to allow more people to participate.

Meg Roberts, Founder: "It says something extra, I think, that just shows that in Fargo, North Dakota, this is how we treat our neighbors. We treat them with love, we treat them with compassion. We treat them with decency."

Plants for Patients has given out more than 500 plants since it was founded in March 2012.
