Meet the Vista Point Gives Back Team

Neighbors Transforming Compassion into Action

June 14, 2024     People in The Pinehills

In the heart of the Vista Point neighborhood at The Pinehills, surrounded by stunning sunsets and amazing amenities, there's a story of heartfelt compassion.

Vista Point is home to a remarkable group of six women: Stacey Cappella, Alison Davies, Judy Mosca, Jo-Anne Gretemeyer, Deb Cahoon, Lynnda Tibbetts Macisso and Joanne Nadeau. These neighbors have transformed everyday kindness into extraordinary community service. Their consistent acts of kindness are making a real difference in Plymouth.

This isn't about grand gestures – though Stacey Cappella recently received the President’s Award from The Home for Little Wanderers for her efforts.

The Gives Back Team's mission is simple: they do whatever they can to help the Plymouth community. It's proof that heroism lies in everyday acts of care and concern, as they lift everyone around them through quiet but impactful efforts.

Impact on The Pinehills and Plymouth Community

The Vista Point Gives Back Team may be small, but their impact is mighty! Here’s what they’ve achieved with the help of many friends and neighbors. And contacts, if you'd like to help!

With a Little (a lot) Help from Their Friends

As the Vista Point Gives Back Team has discovered, it takes a village to make a difference. Many local businesses and neighbors have helped them make significant impacts in our community. They would like to thank the following area businesses including Country Ski and Sport, Rose & Vicki's, Peppermint Twist Candy, The Depot in Duxbury and Vinyl Lunatics Records. And of course, a big thank you to the many neighbors who donated throughout the year!

If you're a Vista Point resident and want to join this incredible team, reach out to Stacey Cappella.
