The Mattapoisett Mother and Daughter Team of Monica O’Malley-Tavares and Callie Tavares showed up today to drop-off a ton of stuff and to meet our CEO and Founder, Jim Stevens. They brought dozens of Holiday Stockings full of terrific items for local people in-need. Callie brought brother Noah along to do the heavy lifting!
Dynamic Mom Monica and Wunderkind Daughter and newly minted Philanthropist Callie started the “SouthCoast Stocking Project 2020”. They told us that they have been collecting items all year and had chosen us to distribute to local people in-need. What a wonderful thing to do. What a real, tangible and enduring service-learning opportunity for this mother to share her family value system with her children. We think that if more families were like this, then there really would be a more loving, caring and connected community.
Jim Stevens said “When I see a parent like Monica and young people like Callie and Noah, I cannot help but be inspired. This family reinforces for me what is best about us as people and it shines a bright light on so many hopeful possibilities.”
