The Sheridan community is getting a little bit closer, thanks to online social media. The Facebook page, Sheridan Angels, was started by Kelley Mason, a single mom of five and full-time college student. As the survivor of domestic abuse, Kelley had to start over with a new lease on life, and she decided to bring others with her along the way.
Mason often acts as a moderator to help facilitate people within the community to help each other and sometimes fields requests to determine if there is a real need for help. She also sometimes acts as a middleman between a giver and a recipient, and emphasizes safety to those who participate. Her active involvement in the group has helped it gain a good reputation around town.
Mason said the success of her Facebook group has her ready to start a non-profit organization in the coming months. From there, she wants to have bigger community drives, like to provide school supplies to children in the fall.
