On Friday, April 19th, 45 volunteers from Procter & Gamble took to the streets of Kennedy Heights adorned with boas, leis, goofy hats, and sunglasses to have some fun beautifying one of Cincinnati’s neighborhood. We spread mulch at four different locations: the Arts Center, two public parks, and a community gateway. The City of Cincinnati and H.J. Benken Florist & Greenhouse provided mulch, Procter & Gamble provided work gloves and t-shirts, and we provided the rest.
Residents from Kennedy Heights were on hand to help supervise projects as well as someone from the Cincinnati Park Board. Our volunteers picked up litter, pulled weeds, edged tree beds, spread mulch near an ancient Indian burial ground and mulched a playground in just 2 hours.
