Food bank volunteers clean up veterans’ grave sites

September 11, 2017

Volunteers from the Mid-Ohio Food Bank spent September 11th giving back as they went to Greenlawn Cemetery to take time for veterans no longer with us. It was all part of the Patriot Day National Day of Service. Dozens of volunteers spent hours making sure that grave markers are restored. They say it is especially important to give back to our veterans on September 11. Kaimyn Pazco of Americorps VISTA was one of the volunteers who spent hours cleaning each grave marker saying, “I think today is a big day that resonates with a lot of American individuals and it’s been really cool to come here and give back to individuals who have fought for our freedoms. There was a lot of moss, a lot of grit so it was really cool scraping it off when the water came back around a second time to see them have a fresh new face, really rewarding in its own way.”
