Representatives from the Fresno Association of Realtors also rolled up their sleeves on this Mother's Day cleanup event.

"I can tell you after donating two hours of my time - it's worth it. It feels good to give back to the community and clean up," said Don Scordino, the former president of the Fresno Association of Realtors.



The project is sponsored by Beautify Fresno, Council President Luis Chavez, and Clean Fresno.
