Castle girls lacrosse team cleans up Vann Road | News
You may notice Vann Rd. near Castle High School looks nice and clean.
That's because the Castle Girl's Lacrosse team spent the day cleaning up all the litter along the roadway.
Brian Richards, who owns Express Appraisal in Newburgh says he was tired of seeing all the trash, so he put a call in to Castle, offering up $1,000 to the organization willing to clean it up.
"Every day we take our kids to school and we travel this road, and over the past few years the litter has just gotten progressively worse," says Richards.
The team says they raise all their own money, including the $4,000 it takes to buy uniforms.
"It's not exactly how I wanted to spend my spring break, but we needed the money really badly, and this was a good way to make money," says Zoe Taylor.
The girls filled 40 bags in less than two hours, so trucks from a local landscaping company were brought in to help.
In all, about 100 bags were hauled away.
