It was amazing. Hundreds and hundreds of people helping to make our community more healthy, more clean, more beautiful. The Rochester Neighborhood Resource Center (RNeighbors) organized and hosted a HUGE tree-planting project last Saturday, May 7th.
I was overwhelmed by the number of people who came out to volunteer their time to help improve the community. It was very heartwarming and joyful and I was so happy to document the day.
