Walgreens Volunteers Clean up Scenic Drive
Today was the first clean up to kick off Walgreens, once a month, yearlong commitment to a cleaner and more beautiful El Paso. Walgreens Community Leader, Robert Alvarez, joined more than twenty volunteers from Walgreens to collect trash along Scenic Drive.
I grabbed this photo while making my way up the hill with a trash bag of my own. As a member of the Newman Park Neighborhood Association (which borders Scenic) I try to periodically do my part and collect trash around the neighborhood. What is so rewarding about Walgreens commitment to cleaning up El Paso is their interest in Scenic, one of the city's most trafficked routes for tourism, but a street that not all of the volunteers necessarily live by. Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up from all corners of El Paso.
