Englewood organizations clean Chicago streets on neighborhood unity day

The city of Chicago held its annual “Clean and Green” volunteer effort on Earth Day, and community organizations in the Englewood neighborhood used the day to clean up and organize.

Resident Association of Greater Englewood and Imagine Englewood If… brought volunteers and tools to the 69th Street corridor, attacking weeds and picking up trash.

“Clean and Green” day has taken place in Chicago for more than 20 years; this is the first time neighborhood organizations have collaborated on “Greater Englewood Unity Day.” Inspiration for the unity day came from a community meeting with Illinois senator Mattie Hunter where community organizations expressed a desire to collaborate, volunteers said.
