Friday morning, December 14, the residents at El Rescate woke up with a purpose. After brainstorming about productive things to do, the residents decided to clean up the area around El Rescate. They started by raking dead grass and sweeping up debris in and around the residence. They also took it upon themselves to clean up all the cigarette butts and garbage that accumulated in front of the building, leaving it looking brand new.
All the residents are doing their part to give back to the community that provided them a home. It was a humbling experience to witness them take ownership of their space and to see how much they truly appreciate all that has been done for them.
