Volunteers give Newark parks a spring cleaning
More than 120 volunteers braved cold temperatures and a mid-April snow shower on Saturday morning to help clean up Newark during the annual Spring Community Cleanup.
The volunteers, who together worked a total of 251 hours, collected 140 trash bags of debris from along roadways and in city parks.
The cleanup also coincided with the broader Christina River Watershed Cleanup, which encompasses White Clay, Red Clay and Brandywine creeks. That event marked its 25th year on Saturday.
