Editorial: Good neighbors, good deeds? Tell us more …

The Lima News

Theresa Schnipke had an idea she wanted to share with us. We’re glad she did.

Schnipke is the superintendent of the Allen County Board of Developmental Disabilities. March is DD Month, and they are celebrating with the theme, “We Are All Neighbors.” Almost all of her staff is working from home during the coronavirus pandemic, so she emailed them asking if they had any stories to share about good neighbors. She was surprised by what she received.

“One of the many stories was about a lady named Kathy, who lives in a group home. Her sister, who can’t visit right now, gathered a few friends to do a skit on the front lawn of her home, so the ladies in this home can watch from the window,” Schnipke said.

So at her suggestion, The Lima News is asking you to share your stories about good neighbors and acts of kindness. Email them to letters@limanews.com, or send them to The Lima News / Good Neighbors / 3515 Elida Road / Lima, OH 45807.
