Yesterday was one of those unexpectedly warm winter days — perfect weather for the 70 or so volunteers who showed up and showed out at Lane Street Project’s Season II Clean-up Kickoff!
I’m grateful to all that believe in Lane Street Project’s mission and overjoyed to see that “One Wilson” is not just a slogan. Yesterday’s volunteers crossed lines of color, age, and faith, and demonstrated the power of community.
My most sincere thanks to each and everyone, including my ride-or-die LSP Team; Pastor Jasper L. Kent and the Total Impact Outreach Ministries family; Rev. Paul H. Castelli and Saint Timothy’s Episcopal Church’s Outreach Commission; the Islamic Community Development Center; Peace Church; Rev. George Ward and Beyond 4 Walls Ministry; Rev. Maurice Barnes and White Rock Presbyterian Church; Seeds of Hope; Casita Brewing Company; Drew C. Wilson and the Wilson Times; Congressman G.K. Butterfield Jr.; Councilmember Derrick Creech; and the extraordinary photographers who chronicled the day — Chris Facey (whose work is featured below), Janelle Booth Clevinger, and Anita Pouchard Serra!
