Adopt A Vacant Lot program revitalizes Kinston


KINSTON, Lenoir County - A year ago, Chris Suggs came up with the idea for the Adopt a Vacant Lot Program.

"There are actually over a thousand vacant lots in Kinston," says Suggs. "For us to be such a small town that's a lot."

The program allows for groups to take on an empty lot and change it into something new and nice. A lifelong Kinston native who knows the struggles of the city's past, Suggs instead chooses to see the brightness in Kinston's future.

"When you see those issues and challenges as potential and possibility, it encourages you to get involved,' says Suggs. "It encourages you to make a difference and make that potential a reality."
