A home in suburban Michigan has become a “crushed gravel backyard” thanks to the efforts of a local volunteer and his gardeners.
The gravel was removed by the volunteers of the Michigan Volunteer Group.
The group works to provide a place where people can volunteer their time for free, and is a nonprofit group that aims to promote the benefits of volunteerism, the Fox 4 News 4 report said.
“It is a very hard time of year for the family and the community,” said Bill Gough, who helped coordinate the effort with his family.
“It is very important for us to make sure that we have an opportunity for people to come together and help.”
“We don’t know how to get rid of it,” Gough said.
“We are working with the neighbors to make it happen.
We are hoping it comes back to life soon.”
According to Fox 4, the gravel was put in place in a backyard near a vacant home.
Gough and his wife, Linda, and their young daughter were living in the home when the gravel fell on top of them and the house collapsed.
The family has since moved out, but the Goughs remain in the house.
“This is an incredibly important issue to our community,” Grough said.
