MLK Day of Service - Pope Branch Clean-up

Over 200 volunteers came out of the Pope Branch Clean-up as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. We collected several bags of trash, in addition to large items such as TVs, bikes, propane tanks, mattresses, and tables. Several organizations were there to support the clean-up: Pope Branch Alliance, Anacostia Waterfront Initiative, Groundworks Anacostia, Sierra Club, Youth Build, Conservation Corps, DC Water, DPW, and USAID. Those are the ones I remember off my head.
