FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Florence County is cleaner after community members gathered to collect more than 35 bags of trash near Sneed Middle School.

The Keep Florence Beautiful Adopt-A-Street event was held Saturday.

Students, parents, and staff collected trash from the area in front of the school to the red light on Palmetto Street, according to a post on the school's Facebook page.

“Not only did the students show pride in their community by volunteering, but they also made a difference in the environment,” said Sneed Middle School Principal Hayley Cagle.

Cagle said in the spring, Sneed Middle students will host another clean-up event which will also include landscaping projects.
