More than 85 students, who participate in the Scott County Family Y’s After-School programs, will come together for Earth Day near the Collins House at Garfield Park, 1234 E. 29th Street, Davenport. The clean-up begins at 3:00pm. The students will be picking up litter and planting flowers in that area for approximately 45 minutes.

The Scott County Family Y strongly believes in teaching children to give back to the community through volunteerism and recognizes the importance of Earth Day as a way to reinforce the YMCA’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
