Groups Get Together To Clean Up Memphis

(Memphis) Some Lipscomb & Pitts employees used their Friday to make a difference in Memphis.

They grabbed trash bags and walked streets picking up trash and litter near the train tracks and under the Union Ave bridge on Union Extended.

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.
