My High School Art Club volunteered for a Community Clean up through the Westville Environmental Commission. They were very organized, friendly and made the clean up a great experience for the kids. The people in the community were very appreciative and many of my students live in Westville so they took a lot of pride in the clean up.
Our Church Youth Group is invited each fall to help clean up areas in our community. This organization is well organized and preemptive in having the areas identified as most in need of clean up. After the clean up, they take steps to keep the areas clean (i.e., to stop illegal dumping and coming up with solutions to keep trash from accumulating). This is definitely an organization that is a cut above the rest and a sparkle to the community.
