MCFARLAND, Calif. - Community members and local organizations teamed up to bring "spring cleaning" a whole new meaning as dozens turned out Saturday for special clean-up efforts in the city of McFarland.
McFarland Police, Kern County Fire Department, and R&F Disposal - McFarland's cleaning and recycling company - brought a community of help together to make the city sparkling clean.
People young and old came out to help, and even Assemblyman Rudy Salas showed up to give a helping hand.
"They're making a difference," Salas said. "That's why I love all these community events. 'Cause everybody's actively involved."
Volunteers helped get gunk of the streets and even cleaned-off graffiti throughout the city walls.
