Adopt a Park Program
Fraser Valley - Abbotsford BC
Joining Adopt A Park in Abbotsford BC, in January 2014 was a big decision. I decided to join the Adopt A Park program because it was the right thing to do. My company adopted the park across the street from my house. Since people for some reason love to toss garbage on the ground, I decided to clean it up. Furthermore I was sick of seeing others discard needles and smash beer bottles. After clearing the park of undesirables and cleaning it up, the kids started to play there again. After all, thats what parks are for. Children should be able the play in a park without the fear of getting hurt from dangerous items that have no rhyme or reason of being there. It's good to give back. I tell you this, if you are having a crappy day, go clean a park. Go get dirty and sweaty. Bring garbage bags and fill them to the brink of bursting. At the end of the day you won't have a clue why you were mad in the first place. Cleaning a park and knowing you did it not for yourself but for somebody else is very satisfying.
