Editor’s note: Two Roy’s Rants thumbs up for Penny Dutch Apparel and private sector involvement!
Vanessa Velez and her mother, Karen, worked in tandem as they shoveled leaves, dirt and debris into orange bags at Reading’s 10th & South Playground.
“We’re just trying to help out, and give the kids a nice place to play,” said Karen Velez of Ephrata.
The mother-daughter pair were among about a dozen volunteers who helped clean up the playground Saturday.
The cleanup was organized by Penny Dutch Apparel of Mountville, Lancaster County, with support from the nonprofit Reading Beautification Inc.
