UWGB Red Cross Club Help Clean-Up Downtown Green Bay

Earth Day is April 22nd, but some volunteers rolled up their sleeves a week early.

They got their hands dirty doing some spring cleaning around downtown Green Bay, picking up trash.

“It’s a good reminder to just take pride in the Earth around us and to do your part to clean up,” Megan Vanhulle of the Red Cross chapter at UW-Green Bay said.

All Done!! Little windy, but a good day and the UWGB Red Cross Club was glad to help keep our Earth and Community Clean.
