When Diana Damato suddenly learned that the city was coming to collect leaves within the week, she looked at her leaf-buried yard with a bit of panic. Much to her delight, fellow MTX member and neighbor, Bonnie Rill was available and showed up with rake in hand ready to help.
Chatting and laughing while they raked, piled and dragged leaves, they had fun and finished the job much more quickly as a team.
Bonnie has also helped with extensive organizing in the Damato’s basement to create space for their new wood pellet-burning boiler system. Her enthusiasm and determination gave Diana the boost she needed to face a project that seemed overwhelming.
And with the hours she is earning she can request services for things she needs or would enjoy, like painting or learning to ferment foods.
