What do you get when you have an empathic business owner who is aware of the hunger issue in Massachusetts? You get an individual such as Joanne Cotton: mother, small business owner and former volunteer at her local food pantry. A resident of Melrose, Ms. Cotton, proprietor of Main Street's Madison Ave of Melrose, Boutique Consignment, has a collection bowl on her store's counter for Gathering Change, Inc., a non-profit organization that collects money to donate to local food pantries and social programs. "As a business owner, I have become (even) more aware of the great need" said Ms. Cotton. "And I love to be connected to the community". What inspires you to get involved in your community?
