MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A woman on Milwaukee's south side is trying to inspire her neighborhood by organizing community clean-up days.
She and her granddaughter were bored one day and decided to pick up some trash around the neighborhood.
It didn't take long for more people to join in on the effort.
The clean-ups are now a weekly event for many parents and children.
She says it's all about taking pride in your community.
"It's very important, like I told them...if you don't have pride in your neighborhood, who else will?" said LaWanda Bass.
LaWanda says she's got other community efforts on her mind as well.
She's currently gathering petitions to get speed bumps installed on her street.
