Keep in mind, we cleaned up two sites that day. We went all around that bus stop and up a side street next to it. The other site was on Bannister near James A. Reed. The photos are just from the bus stop.
Special thanks to KCABJ members Jenee Osterheldt, Candace Buckner, Lewis Diuguid, Andale Gross and former member Rickeena Richards for helping plan the event.
Huge thanks to KCABJ members Glenn Rice, Garvey Scott (and his 3-year-old daughter Maya), Terez Paylor and Schanina Winfield.
Thank you to KCABJ friends Gwen Richards, Tom Winter and Joshua Winter.
An extra special thanks to KCABJ first lady Tiffiany Moore, who helped me every step of the way and also served as the event photographer.
Thank you to Bannister Road Baptist and Rev. Dwight Scott for letting us use his parking lot as a place to gather.
Finally, a thank you to Joe Green and DeVonte Jackson who told me they play basketball for Kansas City Premiere. Joe and DeVonte were just sitting there waiting for the bus when I recruited them to help. They didn’t have to pick up a single piece of garbage, but they did, and I appreciate that.
Thank you all for helping make my first event as KCABJ president a great one.
-Greg Moore, President, KCABJ
