On Saturday, September 26th, we had our first social distancing clean-up since February. It was wonderful to see so many of our volunteers come out for a few hours to pick up trash. It was an added bonus to see the Matt Garcia Foundation's Adopt-A-Street sign located at 601 Texas Street.
We are thankful to be a positive influence in our city. We also know that we adopted downtown over 12 years ago when we decided to pick up where Matt left off. After his death in September of 2008, Raymond and I walked downtown and began to pick up trash as Matt had done nearly every weekend. This was our way to honor our Matt and help ourselves begin to heal. It became a thing! We are eternally grateful that it did. We are honored to be recognized by the City of Fairfield.
If you would like to come out and help We would love to see you. We meet at 9:00AM on the last Saturday of each month (weather and covid-19 permitting) at 601 Texas Street (across from the downtown Starbucks).
Thank you all for all that you do!
