When he was just 13 years old, Terrance Moses’s stepfather posed a tough question: “When you pass away, what do you want people to say about you?” It’s a thought that has stuck with him ever since.
Terrance knows that people will remember him not by the words he says, but by the things he does – which is part of the reason why he’s always willing to lend a helping hand to his neighbors. His commitment to his community is the very reason that several of his neighbors nominated him for Portland’s Nextdoor Good Neighbor Award.
According to one neighbor, “Terrance never fails to offer a helping hand to those in need.”
Terrance finds that his neighbors most often just need a helping hand – whether it’s to haul a load of trash to the dump, pull weeds, or unclog a drain. He says that he has a simple philosophy about life: Help when you can help and give when you can give. Now retired from the military, he has some free time, and helping his neighbors is his way of giving back.
It’s clear that his neighbors are overwhelmingly grateful for all that Terrance does for them, and we’re inspired by his dedication to the entire community. Congratulations on winning the well-deserved award of Portland’s Nextdoor Good Neighbor!
