COLORADO SPRINGS — Will Rogers Elementary School is now a little bit cleaner.

"Colorado Springs Oversight" held its community care event at the school on Saturday.

In addition to picking up trash in the schoolyard and surrounding area, the event was a chance to reach out to the community and talk about the group's mission.

"Personally it's a goal of mine to always strive to be better and clean up myself. So when I can see others doing that to the community, it's a double win for me because I know that we are rubbing off on people. We're reflecting in the community as our own standards and morals, so I feel great about it," Martin Lewis with Colorado Springs Oversight said.

The group plans to hold these events every other week at different elementary schools.
