Look for the Helpers: Share good deeds during COVID-19 with the Allen County Public Library

Everyone has a story, and now is the time to share yours. As the country and our community grapple with the pandemic, we want to discover and share the good deeds that continue to come from this event. Many of us from a young age have been told to “look for the helpers.” Our helpers can be doing any good deed, small or large. Let’s “look for the helpers” by sharing their stories.

What to Share

  • Parade of teachers through their students’ neighborhood

  • Children helping at home
  • People delivering food to shut-ins
  • Restaurants turning into take-out locations overnight

Why it is Important to Share

We are living through a historic event that will be studies for years, decades, and centuries to come. We need to document this history. We have chosen to ask for examples of people doing good or pulling together in this time of need. We can then look at the encouraging things that have come out of this terrible period.
