” You truly never know the impact you can make in someone’s life from a small giveback. Being able to use my resources in the right way to impact the community will help shape a better community” – Melika Clarke
The Giveback Sisters are doing their part.
The group is made up of four young ladies who are each passionate about giving back to less fortunate people in their community by providing food, clothes and other essential resources.
Meeting at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ladies all bonded off the fulfillment of helping others. Since meeting, the ladies have held a total of 6 givebacks- including a Thanksgiving drive- in which the four ladies were about to provide over 75 turkey’s to many families who didn’t have the means to purchase one. Moyanda Pierre of the group says, “being able to giveback continuously reminds me of all of the things I am grateful for. Seeing the smiles on the faces of others during a coat or food drive warms my heart and motivates me to do more in my community. People in various communities are often erased from society and it’s my job to remind them that they still matter and aren’t completely forgotten.”
With the help of the community, the group also held a Christmas coat drive and gave away over 200 coats. “You never know the impact you can have on someone’s life. I thank God for the resources and drive to give back. People will never understand the feelings it gives you deep down when you’re doing this because you WANT to, not because you’ll get something back” says Frangie Brisson, 2/4 of the group.
The GiveBack Sisters are dedicated to doing their part. No matter if its a lot of a little, Alexis Alford, 23, says she will continue to provide what she can to those she can. “I’m passionate about giving back to my community because I️ feel that everyone should have the same resources. I am fortunate enough to be able to share blessings with others. I know that no matter what I giveback, it will make a major impact for someone else.”
We send a huge thank you to the GiveBack Sisters for being selfless and putting on for their communities.
You can catch the ladies this Friday at their inaugural “Don’t Touch My Culture” Black History Month showcase going down this Friday- all proceeds will be donated to a Black owned small business.
