DURING OUR REACH IN REACH OUT CAMPAIGN THIS FALL OUR LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR TEAM WAS ABLE TO SERVE A YOUNG FAMILY IN NEED
ANDREW DIMINO KARLA KRAMER
One of our Cary residents has had a trying time during the past five years… she went through a divorce, lost a child just minutes after birth, lost her job and battled with grief and depression. Thankfully, the community has come together in support of her and her two young girls, whom she says, are her world.
Andrew Dimino and Doug Parker led up this project as a part of our “Love Your Neighbor Team”. This passion to help others started four years ago. So far, roughly ten to twelve families have been helped. And they don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Parker said he began this work when his kids moved out. He “needed something to do. The target of this is to help people … People who need a helping hand”.
Another volunteer, Karla Kramer, helped clean and paint this home. She has helped with two other home repairs and loves every minute of it. When asked what motivated her she said it was “It’s more fun and rewarding and you have a sense of accomplishment doing it to someone else’s house. It’s nice to serve, to help others”.
The most inspiring (part of the day) was seeing the love and joy on the faces of this family and being able to see the love that they have for each other. It is easy to see how close they are and how much this act of service meant to all of them.
