It was a transformational Earth Day for the Emma L. Johnston Southside Family Resource Center! PEACE, Inc. invited community volunteers, corporate partners, and staff members to help clean up the empty greenspace lot behind Southside FRC. In just a few hours, our team of staff and volunteers were able to clear brush, weeds, and garbage out of the lots; renew the raised garden beds; and even uncover a sidewalk!
Many thanks to the volunteers from the Syracuse branches of JP Morgan Chase & Company, Housing Management Resources, Inc., and PEACE, Inc. for coming out and supporting the community in this important work. Particular thanks go to Sean from Maintenance and our Southside FRC Coordinator James for organizing the efforts.
