About a dozen teams “cleaned up” for the United Way

Posted by wlpo on June 22, 2010

A stormy morning didn’t stop teams from “Sweeping the Valley Clean.”  The United Way Day of Action was Monday.  Locally, about a dozen teams went out and cleaned parks and road sides while collecting aluminum cans to be recycled.

Jan Martin with the Illinois Valley United Ways says it went well for the first year.  Ladd had groups that cleaned Main Street and the city park.  Someone went around collecting cans in Dalzell.

Martin says they made about $150 after turning in the cans.
