Your neighbor who volunteers at the library, your child’s bus driver, and the Little League coach in your community may not seem to have much in common at first glance.
But Patch’s new initiative, Count Us In, aspires to bring together all Good Samaritans by highlighting residents who are exemplary at making your community a more positive place.
It could be some of those terrific volunteers at the Tewksbury Community Food Pantry or maybe Linda Brabant or some of her great crew over at the Senior Center. How about Noelle Boc or some of the other awesome staffers and volunteers at the Tewksbury Public Library. Or maybe even a teacher that has changed your child's educational life.
Partnering with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), Count Us In aims to illustrate HPHC's values. They believe that “amazing things happen when people work together” and that is why we want to share stories about just that.
If you know someone who exemplifies being a good neighbor, volunteer or teacher—or someone who has simply helped the community in an inspiring way—please tell us about it in the comments section below. Your local editor will keep an eye on the conversation and will be writing articles about all of the amazing people and stories you share.
We welcome all great stories coming from great people in the community.
