PAWTUCKET - The Fairlawn Against Crime Team, in partnership with the city of Pawtucket, will host a neighborhood cleanup event this Saturday, Nov. 8, beginning at 1 p.m. The group will meet at Nathanael Greene Elementary School on Smithfield Avenue. All are welcome and encouraged to volunteer.

The city will provide rakes and brooms. Mega Disposal, the city's trash and recycling collector, is providing leaf bags and gloves free of charge.

Pat St. Germain, president of F.A.C.T., said in a news release that "Fairlawn is a great neighborhood to live in and we are proud to offer our time and energy to help keep it clean. Our dedicated members love this community. We encourage anyone interested in participating to join us on Nov. 8."

Mayor Donald Grebien said the city "is fortunate to have community groups like F.A.C.T. here in Pawtucket that are so committed to giving back to the city and beautifying our neighborhoods." He said the city is proud to partner with the group.

Game Day Sports Bar will host a gathering for the volunteers immediately after the cleanup event.
