I took a guy to hospital 70 miles away last Monday, he was a friend of my late father in law. He has no one. He had a nose bleed that wouldn’t stop. Had to go to two hospitals in the city before they would see to him. Spent whole day in hospital, then drove home. He bought me my dinner at a local hotel as a thank you, though he didn’t need too. I was delighted to be able to help him. – Brian

My daughter attends a small private Lutheran Elementary School in Fort Wayne, IN. Last week, my daughter injured her heel and could not walk on it. After X-rays and a Dr visit, we arrived at school Tuesday morning in a wheelchair. For this small school community, to my knowledge, this was a new experience for the staff and students. read more →
I volunteer at local nursing homes. I have volunteered since I was a teenager as it was expected in our home to volunteer, and watching my mother and grandmother volunteer, it just was something that I enjoyed doing.
My mother volunteered almost until her death at 90, even with Alzheimers, we would go to local nursing homes and she would sit with the residents, sing, hold hands, hug…. whatever she could do. read more →

The lady was so pleased she could only gush over how much she appreciated her help. read more →
