In honor of Earth Day this coming April, the GCC Student Government Association is hosting a community river clean up. The students have invited community volunteers to come and help clean up a portion of the Arkansas Riverbed around Garden City that has become a dumping ground for trash, old furniture and tires. A post on Facebook inviting the community to participate has already reached close to 20,000 people. Multiple community members have come forward to volunteer time, pick-up trucks and helping hands for the clean-up effort. The Riverbed trash pickup is slated for April 28 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.
Kudos to GCCC Student Government Association for making a positive difference in the Garden City Community.
