Every year around this time the City of Toronto holds an annual "20-Minute Makeover". This is an event where anyone who wants to volunteer can help clean up selected areas in the city. Today at noon I joined about 30 of my co-workers, splitting up into groups and venturing into three separate locations.
Some spots were a bit marshy. We found a stroller, a couple seats, a full bottle of Pine Sol, some Crown Royal bottles, I found an old long-sleeve shirt. Lots of plastic bags, bottles etc.
We managed to fill 38 bags with litter and came away feeling like we made a pretty significant difference in the area. It was a great feeling and a nice way to wind down the week!
