Kindness360 desperately needs a riding lawnmower
The hallowed ground of Quaker Cemetery was deeded to the Society of Friends, April 14, 1836 to be used for a meeting house and burying grounds. One War of 1812 Veteran, Joseph Johnson is buried there. On Sunday May 26, 1968, a commemorative marker honoring the Quaker site was dedicated. Today, Kindness360 has taken on the role of caretakers for Quaker Cemetery, located in La Porte, Indiana, since early October 2017. Quaker Cemetery is under the control of Center Township, Trustee Lisa Pierzakowski. The care and upkeep of the old cemetery takes about 12 hours a month, and adds roughly $10.00 in fuel costs.
Kindess360 is seeking public and private donations to fund the purchase of a mid-range model riding lawnmower. With enough funding, the mower will be purchased locally from the Walmart Super Center on Boyd Ave, in La Porte, Indiana. As of this publication, Walmart is selling a Murray 30″ 10.5 HP Riding Mower with Briggs and Stratton PowerBuilt Engine for $850.00! If we move quick, we can snatch this puppy up before the sale price vanishes.
