Men at Salvation Army rehab center scrub graffiti and pick up trash at a national park
Eight men in residence at The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) in Anaheim recently went to Bonita Falls in the San Bernardino Mountains to perform “operation clean-up.”
You see, Bonita Falls was not very “bonita” anymore. The rocks were covered with trash and graffiti that marred the natural beauty of this local gem, reputed to be one of the tallest waterfalls in the state of California.
Under the leadership of James Fleming from the ARC in Ahaheim, the men were part of a volunteer effort to scrub off and paint over that graffiti on the rocks and pick up the trash!
Two park rangers were also on hand to lead the way and were encouraged by the men’s acts of kindness. There were some other hikers on the trail – teens that seemed to be looking for trouble – who pitched in to help too.
One of the men from The Salvation Army ARC commented, “This is crazy, I used to tag all the time and now I’m cleaning it. God is so good!”
