With the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico causing the worst oil spill in history and perhaps the most damage to our environment ever seen, HACE youths are doing their part to try to keep their part of the planet pristine.

Over 75 youth from the YMCA Kids Clubs and the JFK Center recently conducted clean-ups at three public housing sites.

Sites included the John E. Horan Garden Apartments, Erie Heights/Pineview and Harbor Homes.

During the summer, the youth programs will do a weekly clean-up of all of the neighborhoods in which they reside.

Pat Lupo from Earthforce assisted with the clean-up at the McDannel Run Creek. shown in the photo.

After the clean-up the kids were treated to pizza and pop.
