LYNN HAVEN, Fla, – Six months after Hurricane Michael, there’s still a lot of work to be done to restore Bay County and surrounding areas to the condition it was before.
That’s why CityServe, which is organized by Lynn Haven United Methodist Church with help from St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, partnered with the city of Lynn Haven to pick up trash and debris ‘One Street at a Time.’
Volunteers of all ages started at Lynn Haven Elementary School and worked their way down Alabama Avenue, clearing branches, tree stumps, and other litter left behind by the storm.
The city of Lynn Haven will then go behind and collect the debris that otherwise might not have been picked up.
“That is one of the concerns, is that, who’s going to do it? Because the bigger debris is easier to pick up. We needed someone that could actually put their hands on the smaller stuff and so I think that was a concern and I’m glad we’re able to come to help out with that,” said Cindy Rounds, a coordinator for CityServe.
This was not the only event CityServe held on Saturday.
They also hosted a mobile food pantry and a cemetery clean-up event.
