Thanks to all volunteers’ support, Light and Love Community Service Day was a great success. Not only did we clean the streets, but we also brought forth joy to the local communities. Volunteers also gained valuable experience.
Participating in the Community Service Day garbage clean-up of the downtown east side was an eye-opening and rewarding experience. I was glad to lead my own little group of teenagers to help make a positive impact in the community. Beyond picking up garbage, we saw the needs of a world a few blocks away from ours and yet so unknown to us. We got many thank you’s and curious looks–I think we surprised the community by taking initiative to care for others at such a young age. I can assure them that this is just the beginning!
