The Gore St. Flower Bomb

Taking Back Downtown brought together a crowd of over 150 people last Saturday for a community beautification project titled The Gore St. Flower Bomb. 

Throughout the afternoon, volunteers were busy picking up trash, sweeping the street, pulling weeds, cleaning windows, painting storefronts and flower boxes, and planting donated greenery and flowers in order to breathe new life into an otherwise neglected area of the city's downtown.
