“thank you Howard University and thank you to students doing this on a blustery, gloomy day”

“Dear PoPville,

I live on Irving Street between Georgia Avenue and 14th Street, and it is constantly littered with trash. Two things exacerbate this: the south side of the street has street-side trash pickup that blows loose bits of trash everywhere, and my multiple attempts for public trash cans have been rejected by 311.

Today, I came home to find 3 lovely young women in Howard Bison jackets picking up every tiny bit of trash on the street, smiling and making their way down Irving. I jumped out of my car to thank them and they just waved off my thanks.

I’m not sure what prompted this, but thank you Howard University and thank you to students doing this on a blustery, gloomy day instead of Black Friday shopping.”
