A school bus load of 21 New Jersey teens in 7th and 8th grade traveled to volunteer for community service, serving seniors and inspiring neighbors with their good deeds.
Equipped with rakes and recycled paper bags, they cleaned up property around elderly homes in Wayne providing leaf removal free of charge.
Approved by the Ramsey NJ Board of Education, the kids volunteers for the nonprofit organization I Want To Mow Your Lawn Inc., which was started over the pandemic last summer.
Brian Schwartz founded I Want To Mow Your Lawn after getting laid off from his advertising job.
“We’re now in 35 states with over 150 volunteers,” he told GNN this week.

With the success of this week’s ‘field trip,’ Schwartz is looking to partner with schools in other towns to get more groups like this involved in his ‘grassroots’ campaign.
These same kids will be returning in the coming weeks to clean more yards, offering leaf removal and a new ‘branch’ of kindness.
