Women who make a difference in their neighborhood
An article by Nicoletta Pallotta MD, LCSW
Every woman has an ability to make a difference in their environment. We are role models to our daughters, granddaughters, sisters, nieces and our friends.
So you’re wondering “how can i make a difference”?
Susan, a stay at home mom, who has 3 children that are school age was trying explore what she can contribute. She knew that she had to be home for her children and was limited on time but yet wanted to give back. One day, one of the local community programs where doing a canned food drive so she offered to volunteer.
Susan couldn’t believe how fulfilling it was to give back. When she met with the person who headed the food pantry, her idea was to distribute food to homeward bound seniors in the community. Just think how rewarding this was for
Susan and what a great role model she was for the women in her life. When you give to others not only are you helping another person but you are a teacher of an important life lesson, paying it forward is a great message.
Nothing is too small. Whether it’s helping someone in your community to cross the street because they have poor vision or offering someone who needs help getting to an appointment.
