Carson City Community Coalition to clean up graffiti
The Carson City Community Coalition and University of Nevada Cooperative Extension are calling upon all residents to celebrate Community Pride Week next week by showing up at Mills Park at 9 a.m., April 21 for Graffiti Cleanup Day. The coalition, which is working for a gang-free community, has identified graffiti as a problem and is asking for the community's help.
The coalition is asking volunteers to bring buckets, brushes and rollers, if possible. In addition, volunteers are encouraged to wear white t-shirts.
"White is not a color associated with any gangs that we know of, and we want to show that we are united," said Javier Ramirez, a member of the coalition who is spearheading the effort. Ramirez also said that Kelly Moore is donating 80 gallons of paint for the event, which volunteers will use to cover graffiti in several areas of the city.
For more information, call Javier Ramirez at 775-291-3428; or JoAnne Skelly, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, at 775-887-2252.
