Employees Use Lunch Break to Clean Up Downtown

Employees from Xcel Energy, Universal Utility Services and Center City Amarillo teamed up for Earth Day Wednesday to launch a new downtown clean up program.

The "Green Shirts" clean-up team met during their lunch breaks today and moved up and down the streets picking up trash and pulling weeds.

The groups plan on partnering with more downtown businesses and making the clean-up a monthly "lunch out" program.

Center City of Amarillo hopes this will help local businesses take part in making Amarillo a better place by its annual block party in August.
