The Unsung Hero program recognizes ZIN™ Members around the world for their outstanding contributions to their communities, and for their ability to inspire others. This month, January 2017, we celebrate ZIN™ Member, Shiri Lahav, and our ZIN Members in Israel, for coming together to care for a senior citizen in their Community.
When Shiri and her fellow ZINs learned that there was a senior citizen, and holocaust survivor, in their Community who was struggling financially, with no family or support system, they immediately went into action. They organized to collect clothing, furniture, and food for this man. They even volunteered their time to personally clean his home.
Shiri and ZIN team, each of the items you provided for this man, as well as cleaning his home for him, undoubtedly made his days brighter. But it is the friendship you’ve brought into his life that is truly amazing. You took the time to care for someone who was seemingly alone, and brought companionship to his life. You took that spirit of love and friendship in your Zumba classes, and expanded it outside of the walls of your class. Thank you for inspiring us to bring love and friendship to those needing it most in our Communities.
