My name is Audrey and I am on the U-11 orange team. I decided to help pick up trash in local parks. I walked around in the parks looking for recycling cans and bottles and trash. After I picked up the trash I went to trade the recycled items for money in the Pleasanton recycling center. After I got the money I gave them to one of my teachers. Every year he makes these ornaments for the Children’s Hospital in Oakland. He buys the material and we help him make it. I gave him the money to be able to use it to buy more material to make the ornaments. I feel good about what I did though. Keeping the parks clean and helping other kids who are in the hospital beds instead of home. Overall, it was a fun and smelly experience.
