NEW YORK (WABC) --We are honoring those who help their neighbors, who bring awareness to causes big and small, who lift our spirits and make our communities better places.
Do you know a person in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut who fits that description, who is accomplishing things that truly go Above and Beyond? Help abc7NY tell their stories by submitting a nomination using the email form at right.
We want to tell the stories of the good, the hopeful and the inspirational.
Eyewitness News Anchors Michelle Charlesworth and Rob Nelson share the stories of people from all walks of life who are stepping up to help their neighbors. We hear about a 13-year-old who took it upon himself to stock an entire food pantry when he realized there were people in his community who were going hungry. He created "Cory Cares" and encourages other teens to get involved.
We get to meet two brothers who are on a good career track and realized that the struggle to enter the workforce was made harder due to the lack of proper attire and so they created a non-profit called "That Suits You".
An educator in the Bronx inspires her special needs students and helps them feel good about themselves while they're doing good for others. A young man from the fashion world has an encounter with a homeless man that then changes his life and the name of his organization says it all, it's "From The Sole".
Two successful NJ businesswomen, who have eight kids between them, take on the task of creating celebrations for kids who've always had to do without. Their work on a prom for Covenant House teens literally does "Take the Cake". Finally one young woman and her 4 year old son take it upon themselves to bring vegan food to the homeless and they're known for their "Chili On Wheels".
Those are just some of the stories that will be sure to put a smile on your face and hopefully inspire others to do some good as well.
