The late Fred Rogers, creator and host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood often described advice his mother gave him during scary times. “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping,” he would say, relaying his mother’s words. In this time of uncertainty, and as the impact of COVID-19 spreads through our communities, states, country and world, we want to learn more about the helpers in your neighborhood.
Is your helper a physician or nurse working long hours in a local ER, a restaurant worker delivering your favorite dish to you curbside with a smile, a pharmacist or pharmacy tech going above and beyond, a rockstar educator teaching your kids virtually or even a neighbor who is sharing supplies hard to find?
Thank you to those who have shared their stories so far!
Davida from Santa Fe shared: I’ve been thinking so much about one of my best friends Alyssa Lujan during all of this. She’s a pharmacist and literally risking getting COVID-19 every day to make sure her community is being taken care of! I appreciate her so much.
