Westside Cares hosts Fountain Creek cleanup day


A community of people, some experiencing homelessness, step up to make a difference.

FOUNTAIN, Colo. — In trying to keep our town green and our water fresh, Westside CARES in partnership with the City of Colorado Springs’ Adopt-A-Waterway program hosted Fountain Creek Clean-Up Day Saturday.

Tiffany and Luke Scott, residents of Colorado Springs and founders of several clean-up initiatives, coordinated with Westside CARES and other entities.

Westside CARES said many of the homeless people they serve regularly urge community cleanups.

The agency has been involved in three community-friendly partnerships over the past year, and is happy to unite the housed and uninhabited residents in community service.

Westside CARES’ volunteers met at Vermijo Park, but volunteers citywide participated in this cleanup event.

Volunteers worked along the Fountain Creek waterway from 25th Street to Ridge Road.
