Stevens Students to Clean Hoboken Parks
Over 150 students to participate in a beautification project on Sunday.
Students from Stevens Institute of Technology will volunteer their time to beautify Hoboken on Sunday October 23.
The estimated 150 students involved are volunteering as part of the Stevens Fraternity and Sorority Community Service Day.
The students will help clean Stevens Park, Sinatra Park, and Maxwell Park as well as prepare over 30 pits for the planting of new trees.
In a press release sent by the university, Mayor Dawn Zimmer is quoted as thanking the students.
“From parks cleanups, to helping prepare for Hurricane Irene, to class projects focused on solving our infrastructure challenges, the Stevens community has done so much to give back to our City,” the Mayor said.
This is the second time this year that students from Stevens have undertaken a beautification project in Hoboken. In April they cleaned Elysian, Sinatra, Stevens and Church Square Park, as well as prepared 13 tree pits.
