Describe your volunteer activities in detail.
Heather and I arrived there at about 7:40 am. We turned in our papers (waivers), and then we were given a t-shirt to wear, gloves, and multiple bags to pick up trash. For the majority of the time, everyone was required to walk around and pick up trash to clean up the area. In a span of 4 hours, the group I went with-which included Heather Johnson, John Cook, Mihir pandaya, Daniel Penland, Shane Coleman, and Josh Inga-, ended up picking up multiple bags of trash including a full trashcan that we dug out of the ground. We found many shopping carts, and surprisingly a lot of clothes.
What were your accomplishments?
In the end, I feel like I accomplished a lot. Not only was it a great community service opportunity, it gave me the personal enjoyment of helping out the city of Corona. While picking up trash, I also got amazing exercise.
What did you learn?
I learned that places such as the area we cleaned up that day are really in need of volunteers. The amount of trash that we found there was astounding. It was sad to see all of the trash that has built up in and around the area. I also learned that many homeless people seem to reside in that area of town because there were a lot of shopping carts and almost shelter like areas built there.
