Missouri Valley Community Action Agency and Missouri Valley College students took to the streets of Marshall this past Saturday, Nov. 1, to assist community members with lawn clean-up.
More than 50 students joined with MVCAA staff to rake leaves and clean out flowerbeds. The group cleaned up 20 lawns and bagged 100 sacks of leaves.
MVCAA Executive Director Pam LaFrenz said,“This was an opportunity to work with our neighbors at Missouri Valley College and for our neighbors in the community. It was a wonderful project. One of the yards we worked on belonged to a woman who has been battling cancer. Sometimes little things really mean a lot to people. You just never know.”
The MVC students were part of the college’s Blosser Program. While some students were well-versed in leaf-raking, for others it was a new experience. MVCAA and MVC are planning another project for the spring.
