RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A group, organized by a VCU student, worked Saturday to clean up litter along the James River in Richmond.
Sofia Melo, a student at Virginia Commonwealth University, organized the event in an effort to give back to the community by cleaning up around Texas Beach.
“A week before this, I decided [to do this] after I got a piece of glass in my foot, from being in the river. So I decided enough is enough, and it was time to clean up the river,” Melo said.
