A two-day service event being hosted by Friends of English Avenue and the Captain Planet Foundation will take place April 21-22 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lindsay Street Baptist Church, 550 Lindsay Street NW. The event aims to bring more than 1,000 volunteers to the English Avenue community for two days of cleanup and beautification projects, and is part of Friends of English Avenue’s 10th anniversary celebration.

The Captain Planet Foundation will also host a 5K run and 1K kids fun run (best Captain Planet costume wins a prize) on April 22 (Earth Day) as part of the festivities. Event proceeds will be used to develop a year-round teen workers program focused on continued English Avenue community cleanup efforts and for Captain Planet Foundation programs.
