The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) White City Community Action Team deputies teamed up with community partners, non-profits, businesses, and local kids to clean up graffiti and trash in White City yesterday.
The effort is part of White Mountain Middle School’s Project G.R.A.C.E. (Graffiti Removal Achieving Community Empowerment). Project G.R.A.C.E. plans on these clean up efforts to be more frequent to maintain the cleanliness and safety of the White City community.
Students from White Mountain Middle School and Eagle Point High School helped in cleaning up the graffiti and trash. Yesterday’s event included many JCSO community partners such as Jackson County District Attorney’s office, Eagle Point Police Department, Oregon Youth Authority, Eagle Point Student Services, and Jackson County Community Justice.
It also included non-profits such as United Way of Jackson County, Youth 715, Real Life Church, the Kindness Effect, and Familia Unida Bike Builders. Local businesses that participated were La Clinica, T-Shirt City Medford, Spartan Boxing, Cascade Community Pool, and K&T Restaurant Janitorial Services.
JCSO sends special thanks to the White City Young Marines who donated the paint sprayer.
Project G.R.A.C.E. plans to have another White City cleanup event in the near future.
