680 Pounds Of Effort

Volunteers from Strayer University cleaned up the neighborhood

Partnering with the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District and the Prince William County Department of Public Works, a team of four veteran Habitat volunteers, Dave Williams, Mike Gallagher, David Gross and Barbara Beverage, and PWC Public Works Manager, Tim Hughes, led Strayer University volunteers to clean up a storm water management pond in Eastern Prince William County off Telegraph Road on Saturday, April 16.

The crew of stalwart volunteers reeled in sixty bags of trash totaling 680 pounds in weight during the day’s work! They even retrieved a half-filled barrel of kerosene that someone had dumped at the site. Important work, to say the least, as the storm water runoff eventually enters our waterways. Habitat for Humanity Community Development efforts like these are important in keeping our community and neighborhoods clean and safe.

Thank you to the following volunteers from Strayer University for participating in our Adopt A Stream cleanup project: Michael Brown, Brittany McKimmey, Bob Morrill, Aimee Garrett-Hooks, Jacquelin Cassalas, Monica Owens, Parker Howell, Eric Poe, Jennifer Salley, Hamzah Zabarah, Helen Badu, Casey Sparks, Spencer Guizard, Kymberlee Stephens, Tamika Bybee, Alex Austin, Group Leader – Danny Lockwood, Sean Higgens and Kat Pokoleva.

In addition to the Adopt A Stream project, seven Strayer University volunteers worked at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore – Manassas on Saturday afternoon. Thank you to Helen Badu, Adrianna Sills, Diana Jimenez, Group Leader – Nancy Jiminez, Lionel Murphy, Timothy Hanigan and Shannon Laferty!
