Tireless Jewish Center Volunteers Go Above & Beyond

DauphinePrincetonVol Nov2013 Before Collage

Boundless energy and amazing initiative would begin to describe the students of the Jewish Center in Princeton, New Jersey, who volunteered with us in our community garden and orchard at 4817-19 Dauphine Steet. We constantly battle the overgrowth from the adjacent blighted property but these folks made short order of removing at least a foot of weeds, sand and debris from the alleyway. They cleared the fence line as requested and then took the initiative to go above and beyond and chopped down the entire "jungle" that overshadowed the orchard! But they didn't stop there...100 daffodil bulbs were planted in hopes of a magnificent Spring bloom. DauphinePrincetonVolCollage After

Thanks so much for your heartfelt service to our community, for your great attitude, and your sunny smiles :) DauphinePrincetonVol Group

 

 

Men of Zion Work Until the Job Is Done

We would like to express our gratitude to the Men of Zion from the American Baptist Churches of the South who continue to come volunteer with us.  This is their ninth year of service to our community! The wonderful gentlemen that John Taylor and I worked with overcame issues with the auger, compacted soil and rock, and time constraints to install a perimeter fence on our lots at Florida and Caffin Avenues constructed of recycled posts salvaged by John.  No matter the obstacle, these good-natured and skilled men will find a way and work until the job is done.
