Sister Margaret Ann takes matters into her own hands

“There was a need and I had the means, so I wanted to help out,” says Sister Margaret Ann. “We teach out students to help other people, don’t think of yourselves,” she said in an interview.

The nun went viral after Miami Dade County Police Department shared picture and videos of her. The post included, “As we recover from Hurricane Irma, these acts of kindness remind us all that we are one community in Miami Dade County!”
