The weekend is upon us yet again! Let’s celebrate with three stories of people who made a difference this week.
Back to School Best
Manager of the Perfect Line Barber Shop in Alabama, Robert Banks, gave out 100 free backpacks and haircuts to kids in his community to ensure they look their best on the first day of school. This will be the third year he has held the “Annual Back to School Support & Supplies” event in his barbershop. He believes that you can change the future of your community just by showing kids their potential. This event isn’t all Banks does to give back. Throughout the year, he gives free haircuts to kids of all ages who maintain an A.
A Leap of Faith

Officer Jessie Ferreira Cavallo saw a boy running along the Saw Mill River Parkway in Yonkers, NY on her way to work this past Friday. Right before her eyes, the 12-year-old boy climbed over a guardrail and jumped off an overpass. Without hesitation, Jessie pulled her car over, grabbed any first-aid materials she had and jumped right behind him, ultimately saving his life. Because of her bravery, and the others who stopped to assist, the young boy survived.

As many of you have probably heard, the devastating Carr Fire is currently burning in Shasta and Trinity Counties in California. During this time, thousands of northern California residents have been asked to evacuate their homes. Susan and Jeff were two residents who left their home for a few days. Upon their return, they found a note on their door from a firefighter telling them that he had watered their garden while they were gone. The couple is now looking to track down the firefighter so they can thank him properly.
No matter how big or small the action, everybody has the chance to make a difference every day. Whether it’s in your own life or the lives of others, we hope you always choose the path of change!
