You would think we were in the rain forest lol..I really like this picture- see the person within? You can not get a small idea of how grand this site is.. and this is just ONE site zoned for clean up…
Look at our fearless crew!! And this was a steep hill of construction debris. Most of it was either wood, rotten sheet rock, tiles, and some wood planks with rusty nails !That did not deter these volunteers- they climbed up, and loosened some of the harder pieces for us below to grab and bag.
One of the key moments which stick out most in mind is that all of us thought we were volunteering for vine cutting and removal- NOT trash removal. When it said “We are the Trash Removal Crew” by our coordinator Ayana (sp?) for a moment everyone was said “what?” then one person said- “Well, let’s get to cleaning..” and another pulled a pail out of the wheel barrel and started picking up trash… it was ON…. It was wonderful to have shared the same space, and worked with these people, even for a little while. THAT was very encouraging, in the midst of all that is going on in the world we were united.
I have a few more, some of the reception as well. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend that- I had to run to a home buyers seminar I spoke at in Washington Park.
