Saturday the 14th The College Hill Neighborhood Association, the District 9 Providence Police, the Providence Preservation Society, the Mayor’s Graffiti Task Force, and Councilmen Cliff Wood and Seth Yurdin sponsored a graffiti clean-up on the East Side.

Approximately 40 volunteers showed up to clean signs, paint mailboxes, sign-posts, alarm pulls, and buildings, and the Mayor’s Graffiti Task Force van power washed some area buildings. Among the volunteers were District 9 Providence Police Officers and 10 kids from the Boys & Girls Club. Channels 6 and 12 showed up to cover the event, and Adler’s Hardware donated over $500 in supplies.

Greater City Providence is planning to coordinate a West Side clean-up later this month. Stay tuned for details.
