The month of October has been a cold month for fall, but with plenty of things to do. The raking of leaves has gone well with the changes the city has made. We purchased plenty of large paper bags so that we can bag the leaves and leave them where the city trucks will come and take them away.
There were still plenty of yards to rake this month, but at this point it would seem that we have cleaned up most of them. It has been great being able to help our neighbors out and see how thankful they are as our groups show the love of Christ by good deeds.
We were able to hand out some fliers to the blocks, informing the people of more specific areas in which we are willing to help them out with. Also leaving them an email address for them to ask specific requests. This way we can find out what our neighbors needs really are and do the best to meet those needs.
October was a good month with tons of raking!! Soon enough we will be bringing our shovels to help clear snow. Come on out and join in on the fun!
