Trash at Aqueduct Park, June 28, 2009

Some of Grand Junction’s homeless population spent Saturday morning proving something while making our community a better place to live.

Angel Light, a new non–profit organization consisting of mostly homeless folks, picked up trash at Columbine and Lincoln parks.

The group wants to break the stereotype that homeless people are lazy and show the community that they care about Grand Junction, while bringing attention to their cause.

Angel Light board members say the project is just the start of many
more to come, and in the future they hope to organize other community service programs.
