We were delighted to host a Lasallian student group last week for a day of community service and education. They were amazing, even in the extreme heat. Here’s a guest blog from Brother Kyle Mena, one of the group moderators.
Greetings from Brother Kyle Mena. I was one of the moderators with the large Lasallian Volunteer group yesterday July 17th. I wanted to take a brief moment to thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your crew. Was a truly eye opening and inspiring experience for myself, the other moderators and the kids.
One of our boys in the group took a moment to write a little blurb for your blog based on his experience.
“The morning of July 17th, I, one of other of my brothers and other Lasallian students from various school across the United States joined a group of volunteers and professionals for the day of service. We assisted at a creek a part of the Philadelphia Watershed Project by picking vines that would wrap around the other plants and kill them.
The TTF volunteers showed us the importance how to test the water of the creek for PH and dissolved oxygen. They also told us about the many other watersheds around the city and the pivotal role they play in serving Philadelphia adequate and clean water. All in all it was a fun experience that I had in Philly and I would love to do it again someday. – Reynard, Junior
Here are some photos from the day.
