We spent our morning assisting Ms. Sheria Parham to remove two trailer loads of trash from her yard and street. Sheria wants to create a safer environment for the neighborhood children and also provide a clean path for their neighbors to reach their home, as her neighbors have been using a frequently flooded path, created by old pallets across a trash-filled pond to get to their home. Sheria is graciously allowing them to cross through her yard via the new path she is creating so the family can feel safer walking to their home.
But that’s not all, on our way to the Transfer Station, we were stopped by a man who took a piece of garbage off our hands. He saw a way to repurpose an old metal sink as a flower pot! What is trash to one, may be a treasure to another!
Great job, Sheria! The actions of a single person can and do make a difference, and can even inspire a whole community! Thank you for what you’re doing!
