That “something” is working on her community garden in Garrison Beach, Brooklyn. In 2009 she was honored as leader of the parade that signaled the christening of the community garden. In 2010 State Senator, Marty Golden, presented Donna with a “Woman of Valor” award for her dedication to the upkeep of the garden, and AHRC (Association for the Help of Retarded Children) awarded her a certificate of recognition for her work with the disabled. Every Monday Donna directs six to eight young adults with mental challenges in the tasks necessary to maintain the garden.
