Eleven students and paraprofessional Vonda Newborn from Tinkham Education Center volunteered with me ( Kimberly Millstead)  at Life Remodeled on Tuesday, October 2nd. Across 6 days, 10,000 people will volunteer around the Durfee Neighborhood in Detroit to remove blight and make safer, cleaner areas for residents and students to walk. We were only 13 of those volunteers but we worked hard and we definitely did our part! Our Tinkham students are amazingly hard workers, it made me so proud to be part of these students lives and honored to be working alongside them.
