Spirit of Good Neighbors
Everyday Community Neighbor
Someone who takes care of those around them through consistent tasks, and fills a gap to ensure their Neighbor has basic needs met. They serve those in need through activities like taking care of a lawn, running errands, cooking food, etc. We all know this type of Neighbor: the one who, with no expectation of appreciation, knows that we are each called to serve our Neighbors. Whether it be through their church, a non-profit, or their own motivation, this individual seeks out and makes a meaningful impact in our community in a variety of ways.
Someone who works in an organization (church, non-profit, school, business, utility, or government) who tirelessly is advocating for those who need help. They find ways to provide for those in need; and when there isn’t an established path, this nominee has created a way to assist.
Someone who is on a dedicated mission to reduce or eliminate a specific gap (hunger, homelessness, housing, etc.). They have spent time, heart, and money bringing others along to help enable a better Blount County. While their mission may not seem solvable in the near-term, you wouldn’t know it because of their passion.
