The 26th ward provided tools – rakes, brooms, shovels, and bags – and Clemente students cleaned up five large bags of litter along Division Street and in Humboldt Park. Students brought their enthusiasm and a hard-work attitude and together, alongside other community groups, cleaned up the area so everyone can better enjoy the beauty of the neighborhood and Humboldt Park!
On Saturday, April 26th, Clemente students and staff participated in Chicago’s city-wide Clean & Green Day. This over 20-year-old city tradition aims to have community groups join in a “spring cleaning” of Chicago. Now that the snow has melted and spring is finally here, having a clean environment is an important part of being able to be outside and enjoy the wonderful neighborhood of Humboldt Park.
