Look for the Helpers
Fred Rogers often told this story about when he was a boy and would see scary things on the news: “My mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”
Every day we are are learning about more of you who are helping this community. We want to continue to share these stories, as they remind us how special this town is, and how we are going to come out the other side together. We are giving you a pass on being "Minnesota Humble" here. Please share how you, or your fellow businesses, are helping ! We want to keep this going! #LoveLakeville
