Hundreds of people participate in Detroit cleanup effort

Around 900 participate in CleanUp Detroit

DETROIT – Hundreds participated in a major effort to clean up Detroit Tuesday. 

“It is just getting down and dirty and dealing with all of the grass and the shoot up and helping make it a little more livable,” said Jack Lareau of University of Detroit Jesuit High School.

Lareau is one of the many volunteers who participated in CleanUp Detroit. He is a senior at the school. 

Chris Charboneau, with the school, said they started the cleanup effort early Tuesday morning.

"We got kids all over this area,and so one of the spots I noticed right away was this alley that was overwhelmed with brush, trash, you couldn’t see down that alley at all," said Charboneau.
