BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Broward resident Nadine McCrea is a prime example of what just one person can do to make a huge difference in the lives of others. McCrea, and the Washington Park Community Enhancement Collaboration were the recipients of this week's Broward Good News recognition by County Commissioner Beam Furr.
McCrea first became active in her neighborhood when she noticed that children in her community had no activities and that elderly people voiced fear of leaving their homes.
