Alternative Winter Break 2016 Post When Delivering Dirt is Meaningful – Andrew Rogatinsky

By Sharon Schoenfeld
Andrew (r), a couple of women from Texas and some dirt.

Today is day five of the trip and it’s going great. Today was a great day for many reasons and it has been a great experience. Today we did the Greenlight project and it was awesome. First off we drove around and delivered dirt to all the other groups who were making gardens for people in their yards. We only had to make three gardens but there were four groups so all I had to do was deliver the dirt. When we were delivering the last batch one of the containers accidentally spilled all over our rental car which was not very good. After that we got to have lunch and then began to start the light bulb part of the day. We went around to three different houses putting in really good light bulbs that help the environment and helps the homeowner save money. Our first house had the most to install and they all were very thankful of our help. Today was an awesome day for me and AWB as a whole. I will never forget this trip and hope to be back next year.
