Parker’s Pick Up helps Build a Miracle

Mother-son duo Parker and Alexandra Langenberg have spent part of January taking to the streets in a pick-up truck visiting neighbors who’ve asked for their help disposing of their Christmas trees. In exchange for the service, they accept donations that are then given to the charity Build a Miracle, which works to build homes and fund education for families in Mexico.

The homegrown project is called Parker’s Pick Up.

“We just decided that lots of people don’t really want the hassle of taking their tree out just because maybe they don’t have the right vehicle and they just don’t want to put it on the top of their car and go through all that work,” Parker said.

The idea came to fruition last year as part of a larger effort by 14 Scripps Ranch High School and Cathedral Catholic High School boys to help Build a Miracle construct a state-of-the-art playground in Tijuana, a project that would require them to raise $50,000, according to Alexandra. She said the boys would not only raise money for the project, but also contribute to much of the manual labor it will require.

Because Parker’s schedule is packed with sports responsibilities, he said it would be difficult for him to visit Tijuana often. This meant he had to put more effort into fundraising at home.

Last year, he said, the project raised $600 during the post-holiday months. This year, they’ve raised more than $1,000 – disposing of about 50 trees – and are still going.

“We would like to try to raise $2,000 over the combination of the two different pick-up years, so we’re getting very close and I think we’re going to meet that goal,” Alexandra said.

Thanks to word-of-mouth and numerous Facebook posts, Alexandra said, the community response to the program this year has been “overwhelming.” Some neighbors who don’t have Christmas trees to get rid of will donate money just to support the cause, she said.

With the project’s success coming more into the light, Alexandra said she is proud of her son’s efforts to commit himself to charity work.

“He’s been real entrepreneurial about how he wanted to raise money for a charity and it kind of just shows how industrious he is, and he’s pretty business-minded for someone his age,” Alexandra said. “The fact that he’s willing to work so hard and give it all away I think really says a lot about his character and who he is.”

Anyone looking to have a tree picked up or to make a donation to Parker’s project may contact Alexandra directly by texting (858) 344-6541.
