It's amazing what a difference a few hours of hard work can have on an area. We were able to fill 5 giant bags with garbage that included everything from diapers, to stolen packages, to clothing, and of course your typical fast food bags, cups, and other assorted containers. The area looks a lot nicer, thanks to everyone who participated, your hard work is greatly appreciated not only by BVNA but also the entire neighborhood! #Cleanup #Garbage #Dumping
