KISSIMMEE, Fla. – One of Central Florida’s busiest highways is a lot cleaner after dozens of volunteers helped tidy it up Friday morning for National Volunteer Month.
- Volunteers picked up trash along U.S. 192 in Kissimmee
- It was part of National Volunteer Month
- Volunteers collected 17 bags of trash
The more than 50 volunteers made up of Florida Technical College students and members of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce cleaned a one-mile stretch of U.S. 192.
“I am really proud of them,” Florida Technical College president Dr. James Mike Burkett said. “They showed the spirit of their community, not only the ones from Kissimmee. Most of our students live close to the campuses where they go to school and this is happening all across the state.”
