The annual Great American Clean-up in Allen is set for Saturday, April 27. This year includes a special volunteer beautification project called Paint the Town. Paint the Town will involve high school aged students and adult volunteers in painting as many of the 3,000 fire hydrants in Allen as possible on the morning of the Great American Cleanup.
The project needs approximately 1,000 participants to achieve the goal. Youth and adult volunteers interested in participating can register at www.JustServe.org, search under “Projects” for the event or email volunteer organizers at PainttheTownAllen@gmail.com. Volunteers receive a special t-shirt.
