San Jose team takes time to improve their own neighborhood

A team from the San Jose office spent a few hours working at the Guadalupe River Trail picking up trash. This turned out to be a bigger and more rewarding job than we expected. We started by picking up trash in a park area, but then moved to the river bank itself. This area had been flooded due to rising waters after all the rain. This washed out some homeless camps and their trash which was now abandoned. We ended up picking up two pick-up loads of trash- about 1000lbs, which is not bad for eight people!  We also noticed why there is now a ban on plastic shopping bags here, as there were lots of them caught in the debris by the river.
