We had a great time working with volunteers from Barefoot Proximity last week! We transformed a corner of Clay Street in a matter of hours thanks to our hardworking volunteers. Some of the folks from Barefoot also captured a few videos of us in action for a pro bono video they’re making for our organization! We can’t wait to see what they create, and we can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime, check out this before and after!
