Interpreting for Social Justice

Over 30 people pitched in for a community work day at 4 King St on November 20th, 2010. One year and 8 months since the devastating fire, Stone Soup stays strong and is finally able to begin rebuilding. They begin with cleaning out debris from inside the basement and first two floors, as well as removing the stage, patching the sides of the porch and cleaning up the grounds. The group left energized and even more steadfast about the decision to rebuild at 4 King St, as the clean-up revealed the structural strength and beautiful woodwork that remains in most of the building. The workday was also a great reminder of neighborhood connection Stone Soup has, as several neighbors came by to pitch in. One neighbor, Calvin Bradshaw, states "it's so great to see the rebuilding getting ready to begin, it means a lot to the neighborhood."
