She's spent the last three days feeding her community.

“I hope that one day I can raise just good being human beings who are just willing to be of service others,” said Sinclair.

Carrying boxes and making deliveries isn’t easy but she says being there for her neighbors is important.

"If you’re too swamped out with children bring your kids anyway just put them in the car if you can take five meals to somebody taking five meals to somebody you’ve done something and some kind of way,” said Sinclair.

Sinclair added moments like these are when communities become closer.

"There’s some kind of disaster and it’s been amazing seeing little volunteers coming in just being able to help somebody like you don’t even have to know them," said Sinclair.

The meals she's delivering come from the Salvation Army in Blair.

“Be ready and willing to do something for community...that’s really just stricken and shocked by whatever with the planet does it’s just a natural disaster and we need to have a natural response to help others," said Sinclair.
