Letter: Thanks for helping clear the clutter

May 10, 2012|Letter to The Aegis

Thank you everyone who participated yesterday in Clear Your Clutter Day. We had an overwhelming response with 623 cars coming through. That number does not include the many cars who got in line, waited an hour and decided to move on before actually coming through. At times the traffic snaked around and through the college and there were three aisles of cars working their way through the parking lot. HCC Security did a fantastic job of managing the traffic.

I am profoundly appreciative of the people who stepped in at the last minute to help and who without planning gave up their Saturday just to keep the event moving including: BumbleJunk of Bel Air - Ryan and Stan; Rebecca and Annabel Jessop; Amanda McGhee and family; Greg Deal, Steve Pulliam and Lou at HCC.

Thank you to the partners who came on time: SARC,Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity, Always Recycling, The Shred Mill, College Hunks Hauling Junk, HCC Vowlunteers.

Thank you to the partners who stayed to the end and even after to handle the clutter that came in: SARC, Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity, Always Recycling.

Thank you Pat Hogan of HCC for helping to coordinate this event, for staying the duration AND for trouble shooting and solving problems as they arose.

Goodwill did arrive and loaded two semi trucks full of household goods that were donated. A tremendous amount of stuff that took eight adults and one kindergartner three hours to load in the rain.

This event would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors including Always Recycling, Harford Bank, Bel Air Downtown Alliance, Rob Jenkins of Prospect Mortgage and many others listed on ClearYourClutterDay.org
