Volunteers help clean up wall

A stucco wall on 143rd Avenue in University Area covered in weeds and overgrowth got a quick makeover during the recent "Paint the Town" community service event. The wall was a patchwork of mismatched paint as a result of graffiti and gang tags. Volunteers cleaned and painted the wall in one day. More than 1,000 volunteers from businesses, public agencies, churches, service groups and student organizations participated in the inaugural "Paint the Town" event, coordinated by the University Area Community Development Corp. and sponsored by PNC Bank. Volunteers painted houses and other properties, mowed grass, cleared debris and collected trash across the University Area. Kenneth Knight
