Veritas Preparatory School teamed up with Greenville County’s Litter Ends Here and Friends of the Reedy River to hold a community service day! Students cleaned several locations along the Swamp Rabbit Trail and at Oak Grove Lake.

The impacts of this cleanup go beyond cleaning our community because it has brought litter awareness and education to so many kids!

If your school or youth group would like to volunteer, please contact the Litter Prevention Coordinator, Summer Gagnon, at sgagnon@greenvillecounty.org.
