GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College’s YouthBuild students are calling for volunteers to help them clean up the Hunterstown neighborhood in Alton, Illinois, starting at 10 a.m. Friday, August 1. 

Volunteers will meet at L&C’s St. Pat’s Annex, which is located at 1004 East 5th Street in Alton, before beginning the Hunterstown Neighborhood Clean-Up. Several groups of volunteers will be formed to clean up designated areas. The volunteering opportunity will end around 1 p.m.

“This is an opportunity to revitalize our city with low-risk and high reward,” said YouthBuild Director Jared McCain. “The residents of Hunterstown and the citizens of Alton will always deserve a clean environment to raise and enjoy their families. When concerned citizens and passionate volunteers work together, an impact on our community is truly created.”
