Flint Neithercut Elementary Blueberry Ambassadors ‘warm hearts’ of strangers, community members, and even their own

Flint Neithercut Elementary, coordinators Katie Hovanec and Precious Lee

On a cold brisk November day, our whole class went outside to pick up trash around the school. We wanted to do this to be respectful to the school and community. It was disappointing to see that people don’t take care of the school grounds and they litter. It is rather disgusting. We were shocked with the amount of trash we collected. Afterwards, we felt happy because kids on the playground will be safe and our school will look nice and clean.
