This is the perfect group to give back, pay it forward, and lend a helping hand! We will work hard to provide resources to those who are in need! There will be many items posted for free in hopes to give back to those in our community. 



A Message from Lisa Jean Smith:

I am grateful to be able to create this group as a way to help people in our community to thrive. I have a heart for wanting to help others.

I am also doing this in memory of my husband Lenny. Lenny was grateful for and loved the Heron Lake he called home. Many people probably didn’t know that as a child, Lenny’s family struggled to survive on a daily basis. The stories I heard about their life growing up made me even more aware of how important it is to help others. The one thing their family did have was a faith in God to get them through.

I am hoping through creation of this page we can be a blessing to others and lift each other up in doing so.
