I believe that for any community to prosper, it must have strong, capable leaders dedicated to helping made life better for everyone in it.
How do you become a leader or help those who are already helping, you ask? Get involved!
The United Way of Gaston County, the Salvation Army, Crisis Assistance Ministry, CaroMont Regional Medical Center, local churches, local government and many other organizations could use your time and financial support. Find one whose mission speaks to your abilities or passion and volunteer to serve on their board of directors, work at their events or donate to their cause.
Get involved and know the satisfaction of sharing your God-given talents with others. I don’t believe our so-called “Greatest Generation” is any greater than today’s young people. They are many who are motivated to serve their community.
I ask the new, young leaders to show their dedication to our community by working to make life better for all in Gaston County.
