What makes a community great?  

Feb 5, 2024 | SAMU Wellbeing

What makes a community great? It is the members that reside within the community.  

If you would like to become a better community member here are some steps that you can take: 

  1. Be a good neighbor (which includes being kind and respectful towards others) 
  2. Get involved (by volunteering and using your voice) 
  3. Support (this can range between buying from local business to attending events in your community) 

But before you do all this there is one step that must be taken to become a great community member and that is to build yourself first. To give to your community, you must give to yourself first, you must give yourself time, love, and patience so that you can fill your cup. Once your cup is filled, you can fill other cups too.
