Kick-Off District Wide Beautification Program
Grand Center, Inc. will join forces with 100 student volunteers from Saint Louis University, Grand Center Arts Academy and Loyola Academy on Saturday, October 26, 2013, to celebrate “Make a Difference Day.”
Volunteers will clean the Grand Center District by pulling weeds, picking up trash and leaves, and planting bulbs in the tree wells along the District’s sidewalks. This will also serve as a kick-off for the Grand Center District’s beautification efforts as a result of the Great Streets planning process.
“I’m grateful for the army of volunteers who are giving their time to keep the Grand Center District looking pristine,” said Vince Schoemehl, Grand Center President & CEO. “Their giving spirit defines the meaning of Make a Difference Day.”
Adult volunteers will also be participating from the following groups: Grand Center Arts Academy, Loyola Academy, Metropolitan Artists Lofts, Nine Network, and Fox ushers.
The beautification efforts start at 10:30 a.m.
