This is Mental Health Awareness Month. Look at the members of our community who are mentally challenged or even physically for that matter. They still have much to give to all of us. At our shop, Clearwater Valley Co-op, we have several volunteers who are challenged in some way and not a nicer, friendly, or helpful group will you ever find. If you are in a position to help one of our “challenged” give it a try, they will surprise you at their dedication, humor and loyalty, just to name a few. If you are “challenged,” and would like a chance to volunteer, give me a call and I may be able to put you in touch with someone who could use your help. There will be a lot of events this month to support this cause, sign up and take part.
