More than 40 young Housing Authority residents assisted by volunteers from Gannon University partnered with the Housing Authority, Sister Pat Lupo from the Neighborhood Art House and staff from the YMCA Kids Club to participate in the Annual International Coastal Clean-up at the John E. Horan Garden Apartments on Saturday, September 20th.

The focus was on cleaning up the McDannell Run stream that runs through the John E. Horan Garden Apartments, shown above. Participants not only cleaned up the stream and surrounding JEHGA neighborhood but they catalogued and sorted what was picked up to better understand how people affect the environmental and the stream.
