Spruce Up Sullivant!

18 Sep

Confluence members are active in the Franklinton neighborhood! On Saturday, September 7, all five volunteers with Confluence were able to participate in Mayor Coleman and The Franklinton Board of Trade’s impact initiative alongside roughly 200 volunteers from various  Columbus organizations, hospitals, and churches. The initiative lasted all morning and included the creation of new landscaped areas, the removal of litter and debris, and giving nine storefronts a new facelift with fresh coats of paint. Here are some pictures from the day’s events, featuring your own Confluence volunteers painting and bringing new life to their valued neighborhood!
