The first annual “Georgetown Community Clean-up Day” was a success with 90 people including DOC inmates to give a hand.
As part of its commitment to maintaining this vibrant and historical town, La Esperanza has partnered with community leaders from First State Community Action Agency, La Casita, Georgetown Boys & Girls Club, Perdue Farms, El Mercado, Super Tienda Xela, and the Town of Georgetown to join forces for a Community Clean-up Day.
Georgetown Community Clean-up Day is an event that provides the opportunity for students, families, service organizations, businesses and other groups to make a difference by spending a few hours sprucing up designated areas of Georgetown. This event brings community volunteers together to clean-up litter from the streets and develops a continuing sense of pride for our community. Keeping Georgetown clean and green is also an easy way to build our economy and support conservation efforts.
Participants were encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and to bring work gloves for safety. Lunch and water were provided (at 1:00 pm it made a barbecue).
