Day four of Stacey's Serve-a-thon saw lots of people sharing about what they have done to serve others. From Claire Petrillo (an old friend from my girl scout days), "Hi Kate, I made a donation to our local food bank in terms of a big bag of dry goods and canned food, and I donated items to the thrift store. (They use the proceeds from sales in the thrift shop to fund the food pantry.)"
Susan Geller Malloy, a colleague of mine at Easter Seals Massachusetts, shared, "I contributed to Heifer International to help women start a self group. They will learn to read, learn to care for their new livestock, and learn to protect themselves from domestic violence and trafficking."
A friend since childhood of Stacey and my whole family, Lauren Quattrochi Gremm told us, "Hi Kate. I contributed to a walk for Suicide Prevention that a friend is doing in Washington, D.C."
If you haven't participated in Stacey's Serve-a-thon yet the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention would be a great cause. Your local AFSP chapter likely has some community service you could do as well. For example here is what needs to be done in Eastern Massachusetts. Or you can even just locate a survivors of suicide meeting near you and drop off a pan of brownies in Stacey's memory.
