Peru State joins community to clean up

Peru, Nebraska – More than 90 Peru State students and staff joined a city-wide clean up on April 27. The group collected more than 100 pickup loads of trash, litter and other items.

Peru State College, the Peru Community Impact Group and the City of Peru partnered together for this year’s citywide cleanup.  Members of these groups and other community members supplied cookies, coffee and other baked goods to fuel the morning’s volunteers.

Peru State students also helped with cleanup projects in Stella and Brownville.
