Beautification Commission hosts popup cleanup

Jonesboro Beautification Commission has popup cleanup event

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Instead of sleeping on Saturday, dozens of volunteers woke up bright and early to clean up their community.

They were part of the Jonesboro Beautification Commission’s popup cleanup event along Friendly Hope Road in Jonesboro.

Volunteer Pam Alexander says that events like these are important to bring awareness and that we all must do our part to keep our neighborhoods clean.

“As a commission, we can’t go around and do all the cleanups ourselves. We just don’t have the capacity for that," she said. "We really are engaged in just making people aware that each person has a role in keeping Jonesboro clean.”

This event was part of the Keep Arkansas Beautiful statewide campaign.
