Last night the Extreme Home Makeover reconstructed a fire ravaged home of a person who gave out food, clothing, and help to those less fortunate that her. Each week this show finds people that have been a truly valuable asset to their community, but has suffered some hard times and their home is in disrepair. At they end of the show, a case member says that we can go to http://abc.go.com/abettercommunity/ for more information on what we can do to make our communities better.
Most of us do things such as planning and code enforcement for our municipalities, but that is because it is the profession that we went into. Does anyone do anything else? One thing that came to mind was my dad. Living in the UP we get quite a bit of snow, and to accommodate, my dad has a four-wheeler with a plow on it. Because it is so easy for him, and there are a few elderly people, he will plow the sidewalk for everyone on the block. I also know people who will mow their neighbor’s yards and such.
Is there anything that you do to make your community better other than what you do at work?
