Clean Up Efforts Well Underway to Make Yakima Graffiti Free

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA-- We are in the middle of Safe Yakima, which is a community-wide effort to crack down on graffiti in the Yakima Valley.

Saturday the Kiwanis club of Yakima, Apple Valley and Kamiakin and many community members got together to help clean up graffiti in parks around the city.

Participants said they are doing this to make a better future for the city and the people living in it.

"We want our community. We made a decision to live in Yakima, we want to make sure it's a good place to live, we want our kids to instead of going to another place to work or fleeing the city because danger... We want them to stay," said earl Hall who was helping with the cleanup.

This is just one of many efforts to clean up Yakima.

Next Saturday will be the Graffiti Be Gone Blitz in Yakima where a large group of volunteers will be taking to the streets to clean up graffiti.
