In light of the government shutdown, it’s not gone unnoticed that national venues have been shuttered and essential services have been neglected. Yesterday morning, Oct. 13, Team Rubicon Region 3 stepped in to clean up the National Mall.
Armed only with garbage bags and big hearts, some two-dozen Team Rubicon volunteers arrived early and worked through the morning to put a shine back on the large public area in Washington, D.C.
Team Rubicon formed as a group in 2010, men and women veterans who became “second responders” when tragedy hit anywhere in America.
Arriving after law enforcement, fire departments and EMS, and long before FEMA and other governmental agencies are able to mobilize, Team Rubicon offers private citizens assistance with long-term issues of cleanup and rebuilding after hurricanes, tornadoes, or other natural (or made made) disasters.
