One Good Thing: Mary Jaworowski

At 92, she's making sure kids who need a lot of food also get a lot of love.

GRANDVILLE, Michigan — Time for One Good Thing -- someone or something that makes West Michigan a good place to live. Everyone can make an impact. Today I have one picture that proves it.

This is 92 year old Mary Jaworowski. Her daughter, Judy sent me this photo. Mary lives with her other daughter - Linda Bush - in Grandville. You can see Mary is quite comfortable in her chair there. As she's relaxing she's also decorating paper lunch bags. Once finished, those lunch bags will go to Kids Food Basket. If you're not familiar with them, Kids Food Basket is a local nonprofit that feeds children who are at or near the poverty line with healthy meals. They did not slow down one bit during the pandemic. In fact, their need increased. Mary continues making her small contribution, making sure those bags that are full of food are also covered in love.

Mary Jaworowski and Kids Food Basket get today's One Good Thing.
