It was a cold & windy day on Sunday but that didn't stop a multitude of Volunteers from the Camden Community and Salisbury University Students from coming together for the good of the neighborhood. Letters went out to the neighborhood weeks in advance asking if they needed ANY help whatsoever around the home in which they couldn't accomplish on their own. Today this large group took to the streets and started cleaning up whatever anyone wanted or needed done for those who responded to the letters.
Some of the key people involved in driving this project today were Pat Gotham & Councilwoman Debbie Campbell. The key people that made this a true success was the 100+ SU Students who unconditionally took their times going from one home to another doing everything the Camden Residents asked.
Pride of Ownership in any community is very important and as we grow older certain projects become more difficult to accomplish. Without these wonderful Students, many of these homes would spend yet another year without proper maintenance and this attracts criminal activity.
