After my neighborhood suffered from a destructive explosion, many people came together to rally behind the local businesses by cleaning up the area. I was inspired in particular by this group of young people. They painted a majority of the boarded up storefronts, helping to add beauty where it was needed most.



Dani was among a group of volunteers that I met who was giving her time to help beautify the businesses in my neighborhood after it was damaged. “It’s actually been really fun. And I love helping my community,” she said. I’m inspired by this considerate neighbor of mine.



I met Nora and Sean at a cleanup event aimed at helping damaged businesses in my neighborhood. They offered their morning to cleanup glass, debris, and even do a little gardening. I came to find out that it was actually Nora’s 60th birthday! They decided to celebrate by giving back. What caring people!
