EAST ST LOUIS ACTION RESEARCH PROJECT

[ Update ]

Outreach Weekend Report

April 11-12 , 2003

 

 

Summary:

by Vicki Eddings, ESLARP Administrative Coordinator

This weekend we took 55 students to East St. Louis to work on four separate sites. Approximately 30 students worked to clean-up a one block area of McCasland Avenue. In addition to the debris clean-up we replaced one wood porch, painted the porch and replaced the iron railing on another house, painted a concrete fence and two other porches and foundations. We mowed the entire block and trimmed many trees and bushes. The 10 students assigned to the lot cleanup on Market Street cleared two lots and revamped a landscaped area. Mrs. Ferguson was so pleased she welcomed the students into her home and gave all involved a small gift to show her appreciation! Gary and a couple of students worked on phase one of a landscaping plan at Eagle's Nest. Billie's group weeded a playground and painted a sign and table at Community Mission child care. Resident involvement was high this weekend.
