Scenes from Saturday’s Brightside Clean-up in Old North

On Saturday, Old North residents and outside volunteers took to the streets, vacant lots, community gardens, and alleys of the neighborhood to clean up debris that had accumulated over the winter months. The annual Operation Brightside, neighborhood-wide clean-up day in Old North benefited from help sent by St. Louis University’s Alphi Phi Omega chapter, as part of their Showers of Service Day.

The first wave of neighborhood volunteers gathered at the Hebert Street Community Garden to receive their assignments.
