ASPIRANTES Keep North Miami Beautiful!

On Earth Day 2009, our ASPIRANTES' commitment to improve their neighborhoods was evident during the Keep North Miami Beautiful Arch Creek Restoration Project that focused on the removal of litter and debris from the waterway itself.  ASPIRANTES collected enough litter and debris to fill out four Public Works pick-up trucks and to be declared among all teams #1 (winner). The prize? Five extra community service hours!

As stated by Keep Florida Beautiful, Inc. in its proposal to establish the Keep North Miami Beautiful Program, litter is increasing in Florida and across America. Litter has increased 17% in Florida and is having a significant impact on many communities. Recent reach indicates there exist a direct connection between litter and illegal dumping and higher crime, lower property values and overall neighborhood decline.
