The wonderful group of volunteers from The Neighbor Brigade of Lexington have been enormously helpful to me after I broke a bone in my foot and was one-legged for two weeks and on crutches and in a cast since my injury. Stephanie Lawrence who heads the Lexington chapter of the Neighbor Brigade (and is now the Executive Director), was like a beacon of light when I needed so much to manage day to day challenges and get back to work as a self-employed person. She and her caring and dedicated group of volunteers helped me with rides, shopping, pet care, light housekeeping and support in knowing that there is a caring community in Lexington who shows up in times of need. The Neighbor Brigade is there for people/families with medical crises, tragedies, loss, and unplanned hardship. Their volunteers step in to help where immediate family and friends just can’t do it all, from grocery shopping and meal delivery to car pooling and light house or yard work, I feel great pride in knowing this group is available in our own back yard. When I am mobile I have every intention of paying forward (to quote Stephanie) to join this network of supportive volunteers and give back to this terrific community. Thanks to Stephanie, Katherine Pike (new co-leader of the Lexington Chapter) and the outstanding volunteers of the Lexington chapter of the Neighbor Brigade.
