Melissa Chevers to once again head up ‘One Street’ clean-up May 12

TIFTON — Tift County Commissioner Melissa Chevers will once again head up the “One Street At A Time” clean-up set to begin at 8 a.m. until noon Saturday, May 12. Elm Street to Tifton-Eldorado Road was selected as the clean-up area. Volunteers are asked to meet at the corner of Highway 41 and Elm Street.

Chevers said a new group will be helping her — “People First.” She said this is a branch-out group from Diversified Enterprise.

“They want to give back to the community,” she stated. “They contacted me and asked to help with the next clean-up. That’s awesome.”

Chevers noted that she would like to do the clean-ups each month, but she’s had to put it on hold because it’s been hard getting a dumpster to put the trash in.

She said Keep Tift Beautiful, which always participates in the clean-ups, is looking to get a dumpster.

“I wish we could have volunteers pitch in with other organizations to get a dumpster,” Chevers stated.

For next Saturday’s clean-up, she said she’s asking for volunteers and donations of supplies, such as gloves, trash bags and face masks.

“I’m always looking for volunteers,” she stated.

She noted that volunteers should bring their rakes and shovels to the clean-up.

For more information, call Chevers at 326-0241.
