Kent and Ashley Woods 

Chief Yeoman US Navy and stay at home mom and now teacher.

Chief Yeoman Kent Woods and his wife Ashley both from MG County serving our country in VA heard of a need back home in Coffeyville and they didn’t hesitate to respond with, o “I can make those”, and they did. Their 3D printer ran non stop for 3 days to get the first shipment of over 300 3D mask extenders sent back to MG County They have posted to their FB page anyone needing or wanting some to message them and they would make for free and if you could chip in for shipping would help Healthcare people wearing masks non stop can cause ears to become extremely sore and these devices provide comfort to the ears of the healthcare teams who need to continually wear a mask. When asked in jest about these Kent said that it was something I can do to help. To keep the printer running 24/7 he enlisted his wife Ashley to help while he went to work That is a definition of a hero’s to me. No matter what talent you have, you don’t have to be a medical person to make a positive impact in our fight against this virus. Thank you for your service to our country and now a service to our community.


Hunter Boorigie

Hunter is a Single mom & full-time college student.

When Hunter heard that our community would be better protected against this dreadful Covid-19 Virus,if we wore face masks she went into high gear. She started making face masks with donated material for anyone needing/wanting a mask. She posted it on social media and the word spread quickly. She tirelessly made over 600 masks to date and gave them away for free! When she was asked why she wanted to this, her reply was simple. Why wouldn't anyone want to help? It's the right thing to do,especially in this type of situation. You see, Hunter's daughter Keeva has a bad kidney, and is very susceptible to any little infection or virus and sadly, could be deadly to her. So she knows how important it is to take all precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible. Hunter's responded to everyone's need and was happy to help. We may be a little bit biased, but her Father & I are very proud of her and her contribution to our community in this time of need. Thank you Hunter for your hard work & kindness!

Rhonda Clark and Jim Hayward

Owners of 'Jim Hayward Fine Art'gallery and also of 'Confectionate' candy shop

Rhonda and Jim have been heavily invested in Independence since they fell in love with, and moved to, Independence nearly four years ago from Mobile, Alabama. The owners of an amazing art gallery which houses Jim's creations, they also often host festive gallery showings for other area artists to promote their work. They then saw the need for a high quality candy shop and have done a landslide business since opening. They renovated the beautiful gallery, candy shop and New York loft apartment, greatly enhancing the downtown area's ambiance. They are huge supporters of area fundraisers, donating thousands in Jim's artistic creations and candy, as well as time spent "hands-on." The beautiful hanging baskets in downtown Indy. Rhonda and Jim not only donated to these, but water them every single day during the growing season. However, the best thing about them both is what cheerleaders they are for our great city. They are so supportive of, and constantly doing kind things for, others. Their latest venture? During this recent time of self distancing due to COVID19, they have been secretly delivering sacks of their amazing chocolates and designer candies to folks around town that THEY want to thank! Talk about a real mood lifter! They just may be saving lives! Rhonda and Jim are one of the best gifts a community could receive.
