MILWAUKEE – In honor of Earth Day, County Supervisor Priscilla E. Coggs-Jones will team up with community organizations to host the 5th Annual MKE Harambee clean-up on Friday, April 22 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

“My passion for keeping the community clean and vibrant has been with me long before becoming an elected official,” said Supervisor Coggs-Jones. “When we walk around our neighborhoods, we see trash and litter all over the place which literally sucks the life out of our community. I would like to lead the change on beautifying our neighborhoods, but I cannot do that without your help.”

Volunteers will gather at Pete’s Fruit Market (2323 N. Dr. M.L.K. Jr Drive, Milwaukee, Wis, 53212). Interested individuals can email [email protected], text CLEANUP to 414-250-8164 or call 414-262-4254 to register.

A neighborhood clean-up increases awareness and creates the groundwork to keep the community clean over a long period of time. The aim is to develop a sense of community and pride among residents of the neighborhood.
