Designs for Donations, Healthy Kids Express, Veterans GO! Green, and More, October 2012

It doesn’t take much to make a difference in someone’s life and we have some wonderful stories of commitments of personal time and resources with the goal of helping others in this edition of Impact. A local agency is reaching out to homeless veterans teaching them how to get out of their economic slump. Meet a woman who wants to fight the stigma surrounding mental illness by putting the disease in the spotlight. A local hospital is hitting the roads and heading to schools offering free healthcare to hundreds of school children throughout the area. Meanwhile, a best selling author is scoring big with local students who want to play sports, and all it costs them is a couple of afternoons of reading. And finally, see how one local teacher is turning his hobby of jewelry making into an opportunity to inspire others to help those around them.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world. Tune in, it could have an impact on you!
