Robinson Engineering Volunteers in Gary, Indiana's City-Wide Clean Up
Two Day City-Wide Clean Up Effort
Robinson Engineering volunteers took some time out of their days to participate in a major street cleaning effort in Gary.
On Thursday, Mayor Jerome Prince kicked off the second annual "All in Gary" cleanup campaign. For the next three days, city crews and volunteers will spruce up Gary’s main thoroughfares, including tearing down an old pool hall that has been an eyesore for a decade.
"We want our younger people to take pride in our city, and so we're doing more than just tearing a facility down – what we're doing is a symbol of building the city up," Prince said.
Every two weeks, the city will clean up two more sites for the remainder of the year. The Clean up effort was focused on the main corridors of downtown Gary, IN. Robinson Volunteers cleared several blocks of garbage, debris and tree overgrowth.
