City Cleanup Event Planned In Memphis

(WREG-TV) Memphis was once known for being a very clean city, sadly that has changed over the years.

Some Memphians are hoping to change that by getting people involved in cleaning up the city.

Mayor A C Wharton hopes ‘Faith in Action Memphis Cleanup 2014,’ will be the city’s largest cleanup ever.

The event, aimed at fighting blight and beautifying Memphis, will take place April 25-27 at sites throughout the city.

This widespread collaborative effort involves the mayor’s office, Memphis City Beautiful, and a host of business, community and faith-based organizations.
