Students Take Spring Cleaning Outdoors

Volunteers from Lester B. Pearson high school, with some help from City of Calgary and community partners like EMS, Calgary Police Services, Calgary Public Libraries and a host of community businesses, worked in a typical Calgary spring day (yes, it was snowing) to clean trash and remove graffiti around the school.

The second annual community cleanup is part of the neighbourhood efforts to increase civic pride in youth and combat crime in the area. The event is a big draw and is supported by Alderman Ray Jones and MLA Manmeet Bhullar who is a graduate of Lester B. Pearson Senior High School.

Check out the video below for more information on how the day’s clean up events unfolded.
