The Goodwill Good Samaritan of the Week is DeAnn McCoy, of Somerset. DeAnn is a local attorney with Yelovich and Flower who is involved with a number of volunteer, church and civic organizations. Two of the groups she belongs to, Somerset Kiwanis and SOS Secret Santa are having fundraisers this month. On Saturday, the 13th, SOS Secret Santa is having a basket party. This group tries to give all year long to people in need, “everyone who could use a smile.” And the Somerset Kiwanis Scarecrow Festival is September 20th – one of their biggest fundraisers featuring a carnival atmosphere.
“I feel very blessed in my life and I want to share the blessings with other people. When you help other people it brightens your day and brings sunshine to your life.”
