Each family celebrates the holidays a little differently; we could all learn from Lindsay Schroeder’s commitment to service as a hallmark of her holiday season. For many years, Lindsay has designed and created hand-sewn ornaments to raise money for WildCare. Lindsay works at College Mall Veterinary Hospital, and is able to sell her ornaments there throughout the holiday season. Her ornaments are so beautiful and such a long-standing tradition, many times visitors at her workplace come not to receive veterinary care but specifically to purchase one of Lindsay’s ornaments! Lindsay’s impact is difficult to measure, but her hard work, on top of a full time job and parenting a five year old, proves that one person’s efforts and compassion truly make a difference.
