Name: Jacqui
Hometown: Akron, OH
What you do to give back?
Jacqui says that she gives back to the community in which she lives, works and plays because she loves the community she lives in, so very much- and she loves the people who live in her community, even more. Jacqui said that she was taught that it is better to give than to receive, and that she loves sharing her talents with others to make their lives a little brighter. Jacqui says that she gives back because life can be hard and volunteering can offer a new perspective—seeing people who are worse off than you are, yet still hanging in there, can help you see your life in a whole new light. Jacqui says that volunteering makes her feel blessed and grateful for all that she has- and makes her want to give more to others, so they can feel blessed and grateful, too.
