Gannon University joined Our West Bayfront neighborhood group for a cleanup Saturday.

The Day of Caring, which is Gannon's spring service event, is coordinated in cooperation with Keep Erie County Beautiful.

Students picked up trash that accumulated under the snow and helped with planting projects, too.

"It's important that we not only do service, but we do it in our community, and we're bettering the community as well," said Sarah Oros, political science student at Gannon.
