What is the formula for happiness? I believe it is asking yourself these questions at the end of each day:
1. Have I done any good in the world today?
2. Have I helped anyone in need?
This formula is one that we at Three Square Food Bank get to share in daily. To witness our friends and neighbors demonstrate true charity for other human beings and to then observe how their goodwill toward their community gives them inner peace, makes working at Three Square a real labor of love.
Country music star Tim McGraw has lyrics to a popular song that I like to apply to the efforts that take place at Three Square by our staff and our volunteer community.
When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind Three Square is a true work of humility.
Those who give of their time, treasure and talents and do so with the greatest of kindness are the real superheroes of Southern Nevada. We dream of a hunger-free community. When we realize today that we can turn that dream into a reality, we will pull up our bootstraps and prepare to combat hunger again tomorrow and then the next day and so on. Indeed, the formula for happiness originates each day at Three Square and then penetrates throughout the community.
