Kids in Service would like to send a big THANK YOU to all of the first responders out there on the front lines everyday helping people. Today we’d like to celebrate Dave LaRiviere from the Tyngsboro, MA Fire Department. Dave is both a firefighter and an EMT and we are grateful for his service to the community
The O’Loughlin children came up with a sweet way to thank their teachers for all they have done to make their remote learning experience so positive. Thank you to all of the teachers who are working so hard to figure out this new way of teaching and for finding such creative ways to keep your students engaged!
We’d like to celebrate Lisa Berge (second from left) and her daughters, Christina (Right) and Brianna (Left). Lisa has been on the front lines working in urgent care as a nurse practitioner on the weekends but just as important, she is doing her best to educate our local community through the various Facebook pages in Bedford, NH about the importance of the #stayhome movement. She is one of the most selfless people I know. She donated part of her liver last year to a baby girl and despite still needing to take precautions since she hasn’t been one year post transplant, she is out there risking her health and her family’s health for our community. Her daughters, Christine and Brianna, are both oncology nurses in Boston and are most certainly seeing the worst of this. Christina is now working on a dedicated COVID 19 unit and Brianna works at Dana Farber with oncology patients who’ve just been told they can no longer receive these immunosuppressive agents which is heartbreaking. And the youngest daughter is Ashleigh (middle), a freshman here in Bedford who worries day in and day out about her mom and sisters but is so proud of the hard and important work they are doing. I love this family! Let’s keep them in our prayers!! They are true heroes!–The Lennon Family PS the letter was written by Ashleigh and left for her mom to find. ❤️
Thanks to my sister Mary Butler and her friend and coworker Melissa Senecal. They work as nurses at a long-term pediatric care facility in Groton, MA. They are super heroes! -Lisa in MA
Thank you so much to France, owner of A Simply Wholesome Life, for working so hard to keep our town well stocked with quality food for our pets and ourselves. We so appreciate all you are doing to help your customers at this time. -The Weller Family–NH
Thank you to the town of Moultonborough, NH for working so hard to keep everything safe and running smoothly. -The Parkinson Family
Our hero, Lisa Armes, cares for the elderly as a nurse in Manchester. She is serving bravely by thinking up innovative ways to keep her patients positive and cheerful. We are grateful to Lisa for her service! The Label Family-NH
