2010 Intergenerational Spring Clean-Up
Oneida County has some really amazing youth! Mike Romano, Director of the Oneida County Office for the Aging and Continuing Care, myself and senior citizens throughout Oneida County witnessed firsthand just how amazing they were April 24th and 25th when they volunteered in the 2nd Annual Intergenerational Spring Clean-Up. Over 200 youth volunteers raked and bagged leaves, swept porches, sidewalks and driveways and brought debris to the curb for pickup; and here’s what’s amazing, they thanked us for the opportunity to help!
The Intergenerational Spring (and Fall) Clean-Ups are collaboration between the Oneida County Youth Bureau, the Oneida County Office for the Aging and Continuing Care, Oneida County colleges, school districts, youth organizations and clubs.” Thank you again for having us participate this weekend,” said Utica College Black Student Union President Kennia Vernard. Amazing!
