Eight-year-old kidpreneur and humanitarian, Madisyn Timmons, is inviting the community to join her for a community cleanup day on July 20, 9 a.m. to noon, in the Fairington Park area where she lives in the city of Stonecrest. Volunteers will meet at Fairington Park, 3227 Fairington Drive

Arlean Timmons said her daughter got the idea to do a community cleanup after noticing the litter she saw strewn along the roadways during her daily commute home from school.

“She asked what we could do to freshen it up,” said Arlean Timmons, who immediately helped Madisyn to put the wheels in motion.

Madisyn, who attends the DeKalb Elementary School of the Arts, had expressed the same can-do enthusiasm when she set out to create her own lip gloss line, Timmons said. Together, they developed “With Love From Madisyn,” offering the $3 glosses and balms in fun flavors: green apple, cherry, blue raspberry, bubble gum and natural lip balm. Timmons said her daughter plans to donate a portion of the sales to charitable causes to help children.

Timmons said volunteers who would like to help with the community cleanup should dress comfortably. Keep DeKalb Beautiful will provide supplies for the cleanup. Donations of water and food are welcome for the volunteers. Arlene Timmons can be reached at arlenetimmons@gmail.com.
