He’s the Pastor of Adult Ministries at the First Assembly of God and she’s an Administrative Assistant for Hall Ambulance Service, Inc., so you just know this couple loves giving back to the community when they’re not showing love for each other.
Family. Friends. Work. These three important things often take up 99 percent of a woman’s time. That remaining one percent is often reserved for a bit of well-deserved “me time.”
What’s so special about Bakersfield and Kern County is that we have an abundance of women who use that one percent to do something for others; professional women who work hard, spend time with their families and friends, but also set aside some of their valuable time for giving back to the community in which they live. These three amazing women are perfect examples.
People passionate about pastries and good causes flooded downtown’s Compassion Corner outside KGET studios to support the Alzheimer’s Disease of Kern County’s (ADAKC) annual Pennies for Your Thoughts Fundraiser. This event consisted of a drive-thru where donors could purchase delicious Hodel’s cinnamon rolls all while supporting the ADAKC and its programs and services.
Any positive investment in a child is a nod to their future, as well as to the future of everyone they encounter. Imagine what waves could be made if entire communities of children were given advantages that previously didn’t exist in their worlds that catapulted them from unprivileged situations to the realm of modern education. It might sound a little fantastic in theory, but the Grimm Family Education Foundation lives this dream every single day—and so do the children whose lives they impact.
Kern County’s history books are filled with countless amazing people. Explorers, pioneers, politicians, businessmen-they’ve impacted our community in very tangible ways.
Of those amazing people, there’s a group that has also impacted the community in less tangible, but more important ways; changing minds and perceptions, and standing up for what’s right. Women.
