Chaplains-in-Residence Host Neighborhood Clean-Up

CIROn Saturday April 26, Chaplains-in-Residence from Alumni Square and East Campus collaborated with the Office of Neighborhood Life, RAs from Alumni Square & Townhouses, and the undergraduate group GIVES to host a post-Georgetown Day neighborhood clean-up. The nearly 50 participants grabbed gloves and garbage bags provided by ONL and spread out through Burleith and the neighborhood between Healy Quad and Wisconsin Avenue to pick up litter and tidy up the streets. After the hard work, everyone celebrated with a BBQ in Alumni Square quad.

The goals of the clean-up were to 1) foster neighborly virtues in students, 2) to continue fostering good relations with Georgetown neighbors, and 3) to beautify our environment! A number of neighbors thanked students for their service and their thoughtfulness. The students were very enthusiastic, and we hope to do the event again next year.
