One in a Million Award recipient: Chris and Lisa Vaughan
Where they are multiplying good: Hinsdale, Illinois
How they are multiplying good: They are one in a Million. Chris and his wife, Lisa, have regularly spent days supporting the local food bank. In addition to volunteering, he raises money to purchase food for the pantry.
As Chris posted in Facebook: "Food Pantry Volunteer Friday. Served 101 families in 45 minutes." They come two hours early and wait even longer. . From the south side and Wisconsin. But mostly right here, in one of the poshest zip codes in Chicago. People who live in their cars and others in six figure luxury cars. Alone. In families. Groups of families. My boss says: “We don’t know their story and we don’t ask. We just give.” A cartful of groceries and a great big serving of respect.
If you don’t know, now you know: Any help you can give, however you can give it, makes an enormous difference right now."
Chris beat cancer, He is at risk health wise. But he is there, with his wife, supporting his community.
I nominate Chris and Lisa for their bravery and compassion.
