Blue Springs South Senate

Today we had a student government group from Blue Springs South High School in Missouri working with us at our St. Ann Street properties, clearing debris in “assembly line” fashion. The volunteers were part of the leadership class of Susan Bubalo, who has brought groups before and whose daughter Katie teaches at Sci Academy, one of our partner schools. Katie has also volunteered with us and is now Ben Ifshin’s tenant in the recently sold Project HOMEwork house on South Salcedo! What goes around comes around!
