Trash is disappearing from the grounds of Belleville High School as it's getting a good sprucing from its athletes.
Varsity football coach Joseph Fischer organized Give Back Day, which took place at the school Monday.
There were 44 football players who participated in the school wide clean-up that resulted in 24 full bags of garbage that stuffed an entire dumpster.
”Regardless of their outstanding abilities, none
of our athletes are above picking up litter,” Fischer said about the program. "I am trying to instill pride of our facilities and township
into our football players. I am trying to help them understand that this is
their home town, and they should be proud of it.”
The team will participate in another Give Back Day taking place June 27, the day after the school's graduation when a build up of trash is expected following the crowds.
