Girls Are p.e.a.r.l.s. and KIPP Academy hosted a community clean-up on Friday, July 24th in the Austin community. We are so grateful for the staff and students who came out as well as our special guest, Ms. Dianna, the Director and Founder of The Chicago Urban Art Retreat Center and Women’s Residence in North Lawndale. It was an exciting and fulfilling experience beautifying the neighborhood and learning how community gardening can have a positive impact on the community and it’s volunteers. We can’t wait to do it again!
