Volunteers join Levittown Community Council in annual Earth Day cleanup


Students from Levittown Schools under the leadership of district social worker Joann Medina, volunteers from VFW Post 9592, and Levittown Community Council members came together on Saturday, April 20, to clean up some of the areas in Levittown that needed Spring sprucing.

Morning rain limited the number of volunteers, but more than 35 came out to help and the results, according to the Community Council, were an example of Levittown pride and unity – the Council’s slogan.

Four locations around town were worked on including the Bluegrass Lane Pool area, the Hempstead Turnpike sump area opposite Home Depot and the East Village Green garden on the corner of Jerusalem Avenue and Meridien Road.

The Earth Day Cleanup is an annual event sponsored by the Levittown Community Council that covers a number of community parks and lots in the Levittown School District areas.
