Over the course of three days Oct. 14 and Nov. 4-5, YMSL Dal-Rich Chapter and YMSL North Dallas Chapter collaborated with Rebuilding Dallas to transform several blocks of the La Bajada neighborhood in West Dallas. “It was very inspiring to see so many moms and sons working side by side to make a difference. … I can tell you that by the time we left on Sunday, the community was absolutely thrilled with the assistance they received," said one member.
Some 350 moms and sons participated from both chapters. In all, 33 homes were assisted with yard cleanup, tree trimming and trash pick up; more than 100 addresses were painted on curbs; one house’s exterior was primed and painted; nine streets and two parks were cleaned of all trash and litter.
During the Saturday, Nov. 4, afternoon shift, Dallas City Councilman Omar Narvaez talked to the group and helped with the house painting. Fox 4 and NBC 5 covered the event.

Over the course of three days Oct. 14 and Nov. 4-5, YMSL Dal-Rich Chapter and YMSL North Dallas Chapter collaborated with Rebuilding Dallas to transform several blocks of the La Bajada neighborhood in West Dallas. “It was very inspiring to see so many moms and sons working side by side to make a difference. … I can tell you that by the time we left on Sunday, the community was absolutely thrilled with the assistance they received," said one member.
Some 350 moms and sons participated from both chapters. In all, 33 homes were assisted with yard cleanup, tree trimming and trash pick up; more than 100 addresses were painted on curbs; one house’s exterior was primed and painted; nine streets and two parks were cleaned of all trash and litter.
