Goodwill is all around us
I’ve always said that being good, or doing good things, is contagious. That was proved last Thursday, Kishwaukee United Way’s annual Day of Caring. Volunteers from across the area came in all ages, sizes and backgrounds with one purpose: to help others.
It was hard to go anywhere in DeKalb or Sycamore that day and not see groups of people in white T-shirts printed with “Live United” across their chests painting, washing, stocking shelves, even doing laundry.
The youngest volunteer I met was 5-year-old Jordan Schrader of DeKalb, who helped his mother wash cars for residents at DeKalb Area Retirement Center-Oak Crest. “My husband and I both work for social services,” Antoinette Schrader told me. “We’re teaching him early to give back to the community.”
