Weber Street is a clean and safe place to live. Kids there have learned to pitch in and help their neighbors while earning a little spending cash.

From gardening to walking dogs, helping someone keep track of friends online, and taking out the recycling, there’s always an expert around who can assist. And everyone is grateful that the Weber Street kids are willing to serve the community.

Maxwell Newhouse reminds us that there’s more to life than TV and video games. In charming folk art, he shows kids making a difference and putting other people’s needs ahead of their own. The Weber Street Wonder Work Crew provides a great example of how kids can get involved and help others.
