Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter School recently held “Let’s Give Back, NOLA,” a community clean up day, on May 14.
This initiative brought residents and partners together to improve public spaces by removing litter and unsightly objects. Participants took pride in their hard work and commitment to the contribution of a better society. It also brought awareness to the importance of recycling.
Students and chaperones were divided into groups with a designated area to clean. Each team was responsible for clearing out storm drains, carrying large debris to corners for 311 pick up, using trash grabbers to gather glass for recycling, and disposing of any trash items.
“We would like to thank our partners for helping us create a more sustainable environment,” said Danielle Jenkins, senior sponsor. “A clean community is a proud community. Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
