Would I like to have the drive, energy, and lust for life that Anna Pivano, of Jackson, New Jersey (USA) has as a senior. Ms. Pivano, 90 years young, was recently nominated as senior of the week by the listeners of NJ 101.5 radio. Anna, not only is a very strong and independent individual, she really is a loving soul who donates her time to help those in need. In a few words, she really cares about people and it shows. After losing her husband to a devastating illness, she threw herself into volunteering at a soup kitchen, even cooking huge pots of soup and baked goods and bringing them there to serve to the needy. And as if that weren’t enough, she also lent her time to Kimball Hospital’s thrift shop as a volunteer. What a wonderful story of someone who overcame her grief of losing a loved one to help those less fortunate. She is very much an inspiration to her friends and neighbors. Living alone, working for free, and spreading her good cheer to others is rather impressive for anyone, let alone for someone in their Golden Years. For her selfless charitable work Ms. Pivano definitely deserves this honor, especially in a world where many put their own needs first. Thank you Anna, well done, we are truely blessed to have you!
