VISTE is LOVE
VISTE has always been near and dear to my heart. Over the years I have had several family members on the board at VISTE and this how I first heard of them. My first time ever volunteering at VISTE was in my high school years in 2006. Now I get to work alongside VISTE every day with my job at Madden Branded Goods.
There are a million reasons why I love VISTE but I will not tire you with a novel. However, I do want to tell you one reason why I love VISTE.
I am so grateful that I've been able to grow up with and still live in the same town as both sets of my grandparents. My grandparents have played a massive role in my life. They have made so many sacrifices for me, taught me what it looks like to work hard, and taught me how to love others with my whole heart. I would not be who I am today without them. Now that they are older it is such a blessing to me to get to serve them and help them in any way that they need! Really, it's an honor to care for them.
There are so many grandparents out there that have no family around to help them or love them. These same grandparents, like my grandparents, have made many sacrifices for others, worked hard all their life, and loved others with their whole heart yet now they have no one. This breaks my heart because I cannot imagine my grandparents ever being alone... lonely and forgotten. It shouldn't be this way. But with VISTE, it's not this way. VISTE is family. VISTE is a friend to talk to. VISTE is a homemade birthday cake on your birthday. VISTE is help. And most of all, VISTE is LOVE!
Who else is with me out there? Let's rally together to help VISTE raise the funds that they need to continue loving and serving the elderly in our Lakeland community!
Thank you VISTE for all that you do for the elderly in our community!
