We are responsible for each other
I volunteer with Way Finders (lighting, safe walks to schools, walk audits, oversee trash, and overgrowth) and with Brookings Elementary (Walk Club and Bag food for those who have food inequities). It’s important to encourage parents to partake and be involved with their children.
Volunteering keeps me from getting depressed. I like to be involved to encourage children. It’s important for community because we live among each other regardless of race. We are responsible for each other. I want it to be paid back for my children and grandchildren. We have to look out for each other.
