Love Paradise Group at the Family PlaceSpring Clean Fling!!

This was part of the Spring Clean Fling with the "Love Paradise project". 

This is a picture of the wall that was painted at the Youth for Change Family Place by the Love Paradise Project. Love Paradise had about 15-30 volunteers there throughout the day. They were incredible and super friendly.

The "Love Paradise Project" works with non profits, schools, and other local agencies. They do volunteer clean up projects in Paradise.  In 2016, they started to seek for more sustainable movements beyond Make a Difference Day.  They want this movement to ("Love Your Neighbor") literally, they decided to take action!  One of the tangible results is this SPRING CLEAN initiative which is committed to championing the efforts of those in our Paradise neighborhoods and inspiring other cities to do the same.
