The NYC Department of Sanitation will be providing brushes,shovels, bags, and gloves and cleaning supplies to the Clean-Upeffort. Assemblyman Colton was so impressed with the enthusiasm ofthe young citizens that he set up the next clean-up for a differentarea in Gravesend. Hopefully the weather will be more tolerablethan the last one, in which the kids were sweating but theirspirits never dampened. These clean-ups are a wonderful way tointroduce these students to community pride and involvement! saidColton, who added Most of these teens are still in school and theyvolunteer their precious time to give back to the community. I’mvery proud of these kids.

Any individual, school or civic group wanting to volunteer theirservices in keeping our neighborhoods beautiful and clean, pleasecontact Assemblyman William Colton’s Community Office at 155 KingsHighway, 718 236 -1598.
