Man on the Street

By SHANNON WATKINS

Sometimes the best news isn’t what people are doing in the community, but what they’re thinking. We again present a feature about just that, giving you their answers to a single question.

Q: Where do you think volunteers are most needed in the community? 

Effie Hasson: “Picking up road trash. I do it on my own on our road.”

Taylor Smith: “I think volunteers are needed in the nursing homes to sit with the people who don’t get visitors. I imagine it gets lonely with no one to visit you.”

Lynn Conrad: “Well, I do Daily Bread. [I think volunteers could do] nursing home stuff, people that could read to older people, stuff like that.”

Stacy Conrad: “Picking up trash by the side of the road, so it would be less ugly.”

Crystal Howard: “Help the school systems—read to kids, volunteering in the lunchroom.”

Debra Vaughn: “I don’t know. Picking up trash on the road is the first thing that comes to mind.”

Lisa Wade: “They need them so much in so many different places. I would say the animal shelter and the senior center. I’ve volunteered at the Humane Society.”

Bobby Hunter: “I’d probably say in the poverty-stricken areas. Just basically where the need is as far as the opportunity to advance and excel, like tutorials at the schools. I’ve served on the community recreation committee.”
