CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Two organizations are partnering to put on a first-of-its-kind clean-up event along King Street, and officials say they are looking for volunteers to make the clean-up possible.

Saturday, CARTA and Keep Charleston Beautiful are encouraging the community to come out and join them in their clean-up along bus route 20.

According to CARTA, Route 20, stretches from Mount Pleasant to Chalmers Street in downtown Charleston and is one of CARTA’s longest-running and most popular routes.

Mike Seekings, CARTA’s Board Chairman, said they hope this clean-up will help create a positive rider experience.

Volunteers will meet at the downtown Food Lion at 1015 King Street. The clean-up runs from 9 to 11 a.m. and all cleaning supplies will be provided.

Seekings said this event would make a great day to show some civic pride.

“Come on out and join us, it will actually be a lot of fun. It’s always great to get people together and take a look around and say, ‘what we’ve just done made our community better than before we started,” Seekings said.
