“If you look for the helpers, you’ll know that there’s hope.”
– Fred Rogers
The news these days is rightly focused on the tragedy that’s immobilizing our nation, as our normal way of life grinds to a halt, and the regular routines we all lived by change. But, during these uncertain and scary times, it’s more important than ever to remember the immense capacity for kindness and care in everyone around us.
“Looking for the Helpers” is a series about our local community, and the ways we’re all coming together to uplift and help one another, one story at a time. From teddy bears to food banks, we’re here for each other – being the helpers Mister Rogers asked us to be.
