Residents in one local neighborhood are joining forces to make a difference in their community.
The Meridian Housing Authority hosted a clean up day at George Reese Courts on Saturday afternoon. Residents of George Reese, along with other people in the neighborhood, came out to pick up trash and improve the overall appearance there. Organizers say the event was a success and brings people in the community together.
More clean up events will be planned in the future in order to help curb crime and to make neighborhoods look nicer.
