What neighborhood do you live in?
Emerson Heights

How long have you supported Keep Indianapolis Beautiful? 
I adopted my block about 7 years ago.   I’ve participated in numerous Great Indy Clean-ups.

Why do you support KIB?
I’ve always felt strongly about litter and I was so happy to discover that KIB would help me with supplies to pick up my neighborhood.  My block has always scored high enough for flowers, which I offer to my neighbors.  I’ve met a lot of great neighbors handing them out!  I usually use that opportunity to tell them about events or clean-ups coming up too.  It also encompasses another passion of mine… fitness!  I love that I can get a little daily exercise while walking the neighborhood.

What else are you involved in within the community?
I am the Vice President of Emerson Heights Community Organization.  

Why would you encourage others to support KIB?
Between the Adopt-A-Block program, the Great Indy Cleanup, the graffiti abatement and the tree plantings KIB helps beautify in so many ways.  KIB really makes it easy and rewarding too!!
