Super South Philly Cleanup!

A few days ago there was a cleaning vehicle coming down my street accompanied by two men with rakes who were pulling all the trash out between cars as the vehicle vacuumed it up. I asked them who they worked for. They said they were volunteers from the church on Morris and Broad who had recently bought the machine and using it to help clean up the neighborhood. Wow. Nice in every way.
