September 14, 2013: 70 Volunteers give Glassbrook Neighborhood a Clean Sweep!

Five Miles of Hayward Streets Sparkle again because of an  enthusiastic group of 70 volunteers comprised of Glassbrook students & parents, and high school volunteers from Councilman/Professor Mark Salinas’ classes at Tennyson High, Hayward High, and Chabot College.  Things look so much better once again!  We are kicking off the school year right with excellent community service and community building!  Enjoy some of the images of the day:
