Share the Love: Lori Yokiel
We receive lots of nominations for the "Share the Love" collaboration with Clements Subaru and 106.9 KROC. Our goal is to deliver random acts of kindness to recipients that do so much for our community, that work hard and may be taking on the world while keeping a lot of plates spinning or that has had significant challenges and need a lift up.
Meet, Lori Yokiel, a single parent mom that Jordan describes as a hard worker, raising two kids while trying to go to school. Here's more of what Jordan had to say about Lori:
Lori spends every day doing everything she can to help other people. She puts her needs second and everyone else's needs first. ...... She has a couple jobs and just started her own business. She also spends tons of hours in volunteering and helping others with whatever they need. She saves lives through her volunteer work and I know she has been there for me when I needed her. Anyone knows that if they need someone or help or just simply someone to talk to, they can call Lori and she will put everything aside to be there for you. She is truly a superwoman! I have no idea how she finds the time to do everything she does but she is literally the most amazing woman I have ever met (and I have met a lot of them). She has a huge heart and does everything to help others. She NEVER accepts anything in return for everything she does. She does it because she is truly just a good person. I have never met anyone that deserves a random act of kindness more than she does..... I have never met anyone that can do it all like Lori can and I look up to her. Whenever I think that I can't do something I think about Lori and all the things that she has overcome and how she continues to excel in life and become the best person she can be everyday and do the right thing every day and then I think that my issues are minor and that I can do anything I put my mind to! She is a true role-model.
We surprised Lori super stealth style. Jordan and I were texting back and forth while Mike, from Clements Subaru and Scotty Matthews were monitoring the situation. Once we got the go ahead from Jordan we got out of the car. Walking up behind Lori was super exciting. We greeted her and she had NO idea what was going on. She cried when we told her she was the recipient for a random act of kindness. We gave her Rochester Honkers baseball tickets so she could take her kids and enjoy the game. She also received a Carlos O'Kelly's gift card to enjoy dinner with them too. It's people like Lori that show how much one person can impact the world. Thank you, Lori!
