Council Member Andrea Boone to Host Community Cleanup with World Mission Society Church of God Along Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Corridor

ATLANTA—District 10 Council member Andrea Boone is hosting a district-wide community cleanup Sunday, August 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with World Mission Society Church of God.

“This is our third year hosting a community cleanup with World Mission Society Church of God. We are thankful for everyone’s effort on this important event,” Boone said.

Volunteers are meeting at the C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center, 3201 M.L.K. Jr. Drive SW, to kick off the cleanup. Volunteers should arrive by 9 a.m.

"We are very excited about this Sunday's cleanup, and to introduce our university student group ASEZ (the acronym stands for saving the Earth from A to Z),” said Jacob Lee, pastor of World Mission Society Church of God. “Our church performs many environmental protection efforts throughout the world, and we share one goal, share the love of a mother with all 7 billion people of the world."

Boone is also partnering with Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission and the City of Atlanta Department of Corrections for the cleanup.
