Albany Park Neighbors community group is on a mission to beautify the neighborhood by ridding it of trash and litter.

Join the effort at 10 a.m. May 18.

The group has set up two volunteer check-in stations: the Kimball Brown Line "L" station, and Central Park and Lawrence avenues.

Supplies will be provided but additional brooms, trash bags, etc. are welcome. Be sure to bring a pair of work gloves.

The clean-up will focus on Lawrence Avenue and immediate blocks to the north and south.
