A great turnout of Burleithians—about 25 people—volunteered on Saturday, November 7, to spruce up the neighborhood. Despite drizzling rain and dropping temperatures, we collected several couches, a table, assorted construction debris, large branches, five mattresses, and nearly 40 bags of litter.

This was a great event to reconnect with longstanding volunteers and meet new ones while keeping our neighborhood beautiful. Thanks again to everyone who brought their volunteer spirit and didn't let the weather get in the way of a successful clean-up.

Special thanks go to GU students who represented the student organizations "GIVES" and "GU Litter Free."
