When Neighbors Need Help…Do What You Can
When a neighbor needs help, you do what you can, whether it is helping with a project, moving something heavy or whatever is needed. When the neighbor is a state, the response is the same: Do what you can.
Neighbors in Louisiana need help and the New Danville family is stepping up to do what they can with a project that involves moving something heavy: New Danville has helped to collect non-perishable food, bottled water, cleaning supplies, diapers, hand wipes/sanitizers, pet food, toiletries, feminine hygiene products and other items needed by those who suffered from the effects of Hurricane Ida. Donations were collected at Jazzy Junque, New Danville’s upscale home décor resale shop in the south end of Outlets at Conroe. Items were packed up on September 10 by New Danville Wranglers (clients) and taken to The Woodlands Methodist Church to be delivered to those in need.
It takes friends to help neighbors on challenging endeavors. The Spring location of Two Men and a Truck again stepped up to help New Danville. Partners in various ways with the nonprofit for adults with intellectual and development disabilities, Steve Ziara said of his moving company, “We’ve enjoyed our more than a dozen years of collaborating with New Danville. They do so much for the community and we are happy to do what we can with this latest effort by New Danville to help others.”
Odette D’Agostino, New Danville board member and co-founder of Jazzy Junque, hails from Louisiana and was quick to act, rallying volunteers to gather and share donations.
Ziara said, “Most of our jobs start and/or end in Montgomery County. We are very familiar with the area whether it is for our own clients or for the items we pick up from people who are donating to Jazzy Junque. It does not surprise me at all that the people of this area would step up so quickly to help our Louisiana neighbors.”
New Danville is a rural nonprofit community in Willis for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
