I was able to stop by for a little bit and get my hands dirty - WHAT A TURN OUT! That was so awesome to see. Even our four-year-old got into it with a little shovel. The site could have easily been 4 times larger to accommodate all the volunteers. In fact, there was so much interest that the organizers started a second site the same very day.
