Rockdale County Launches Love Where You Live Campaign

Rockdale County recently launched a Love Where You Live campaign (funded by the B.R.A.C.E grant) to enhance community cleanliness and beauty. As part of the campaign, Rockdale County government and local residents joined forces to clean up neighborhoods, including offering dumpsters and assistance in disposing of unwanted household furniture, debris, and trash. The volunteer group also worked on landscaping and improving the entrances of neighborhoods, resulting in a significant improvement in the area's aesthetic appeal. The first event was a huge success and the county looks forward to helping out the next neighborhood.
