A Successful Summit

After a combined 1,080 hours of service, the teens at BBYO Stand UP and Rebuild have made a huge impact on the Staten Island community and for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
On their last day at the Summit, the group again split into two. The first group continued community beautification – today, they actually planted a garden. The second group continued stringing water bottles together to create the walls of the sustainable greenhouse and laid down the foundation at the community garden. They also planted garden beds to go in the community garden.
In the garden, Skylar Morley, 16 years old, of Ridgefield, CT thought out loud, “This is actually really cool. They were right when they said it’s the little things that make big differences.”
With that we are reminded to think globally and act locally.
