Community invited to cleanup gateway to South Bend

Over 300 are expected to volunteer at the 3rd annual Lincolnway West Community Cleanup. It is going on Saturday between Olive Street and Martin Luther King Drive. The community is invited to take part, joining hundreds in "beautifying" the city.

Organizers say it's about building community pride and encouarging people to take action on making the city a better place. Some call Lincolnway West the gateway into South Bend, so organizers hope more will partake in helping a roadway that affects so many. Local business, residents, and tourism are all affected by the road.

People will help "manicure" 46 blocks, almost 2 miles, of Lincolnway West by picking up trash, planting flowers, blowing out parking lots and maintaining lawns.

To take part, show up at Consuella's Accounting and Tax, 2217 Lincolnway West, South Bend, at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 18. A light breakfast will be served, and the first 300 volunteers will get a free t-shirt.

If people can't donate their time, the group is also accepting monetary donations for the cause. They're still hoping for more power tools and flower donations.
