Sara Sampson, nominated by Tori Mathis
While under quarantine, Sara has gone above and beyond to ensure each member has had something to do each day. Whether it is planting flowers, feeding the birds/squirrels, making funnel cakes or playing outside, the members are as busy as possible during these uncertain times. Sara has also been extremely supportive and understanding with the members who haven't taken staying home every day as easy as others. One member in particular has had a really hard time adjusting to her new schedule. Sara has been ensuring all of this members needs have been met as much as possible by going on Walmart runs to get the members' favorite things (crosswords, diet pepsi, and snickers)!
