TELL US: Who Makes a Difference in Sharon?

Help showcase people who are doing great things in town with our new feature, Count Us In.

Your neighbor who volunteers at the library, your child’s bus driver, and the Little League coach in your community may not seem to have much in common at first glance.

But Patch’s new initiative, Count Us In, aspires to bring together all Good Samaritans by highlighting residents who are exemplary at making your community a more positive place.

Some examples include the Rotary Club of Sharon, donors of the Sharon Food Pantry, and volunteers at Sharon High School, among others.

Partnering with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC), Count Us In aims to illustrate HPHC's values. They believe that “amazing things happen when people work together” and that is why we want to share stories about just that.

If you know someone in Sharon who exemplifies being a good neighbor, volunteer or teacher—or someone who has simply helped the community in an inspiring way—please tell us about it in the comments section below. Your local editor will keep an eye on the conversation and will be writing articles about all of the amazing people and stories you share.

We welcome all great stories coming from great people in the community.

Laura Henze Russell of Hidden River Cloud Network/One Challenge is now collecting signatures to put articles on the Town Meeting Warrant to educate, engage and enhance the health and safety of Sharon residents. Hidden River/One Challenge is a new social innovation enterprise that invites people to advocate for actions to rid mercury amalgam dental poisoning from our bodies, our brains, our selves, and our environments. It is especially toxic to those with the ApoE4 gene, who do not clear mercury well. This gene type is associated with higher rates of autism, autoimmune diseases, ADHD, allergies, Alzheimers, movement disorders and more.
