Posted: Updated:
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Lexington County is a little cleaner thanks to the efforts of neighbors and the sheriff's department.

The cleanup of 28 area homes started bright and early at 8:30 a.m.Saturday.

Volunteers from the Whitehall community included Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Garden Club, Fresh Church and Michael Mungo Foundation.

They picked up trash, yard debris and trimmed trees and bushes.

It wasn't just a beautifying effort, the sheriff's department says the cleanup also helps prevent crime by eliminating places for criminals to hide near houses.
