Deserving respect
June 9, 2024

By Amelia, MaST Community Charter Healthy Panther Post | One thing I can do is to help the elderly. If they ever need gardening or if they need help walking about the neighborhood, I’m there. Helping them with daily activities is very good for the community.

I could do this because the elderly are very important in my community. So many of my neighbors have elderly family members who need help. If I am free, why not help the people who have helped my community in the past? They deserve respect and appreciation.
