More than 30 volunteers helped pick up more than a grocery cart full of trash and debris from Yuma Street and 5th Street down to the Douglass Center.

"The whole idea is to literally give back to the community in every facet possible. We accept anybody at any time and we're open to the public. We just want to love thy neighbor. And that was the title of the event was A Love Thy Neighborhood." Be Able Program Director, Marlon Jackson says.
