I’m a volunteer. I always make time to help in barangay projects because the volunteers are well-cared for. I get to learn, meet new people, and make basketball playmates. Today, I’m the one taking care of the volunteers. I’m grilling fish for lunch for the barangay captain, members, and volunteers who are cleaning the creek. I heard that the creek is clogged up with plastic. They say the people living beside it are the cause of the problem and encouraging them to stop throwing waste in the water is proving to be challenge. As a treat, I’ll cook more fish to motivate them to do their part in making our barangay better.
