This week we recognize Lillian and Elise McIntosh, who were nominated by their mother Yvonne.
Yvonne says the girls stepped up to help their neighbours, beginning with the intention of cleaning up one neighbour’s yard after heavy wind scattered material from their blue box. She says they didn’t stop there. “They said ‘you know, it feels good to help each other’ and I wanted to encourage that, so we just went down the street. They ended up doing seven people’s front yards and they didn’t up a fuss. They just did it and I was really proud of them and just wanted to give them a little bit of recognition.”
