On April 25 a group of Boys Hope Girls Hope scholars and staff collected 17 bags of trash along the North Shore Channel in Evanston near the Peter Jans Community Golf Course. This is the third year that Boys Hope Girls Hope has participated in the joint efforts of Trashbusters and Keep Evanston Beautiful.

Boys Hope Girls Hope is a residential scholarship program with three homes in Evanston for at-risk kids. All of the students who graduate from high school attend college. Part of the mission of this organization is to teach the scholars to give back to the community; more than 300 volunteer hours are contributed in Evanston each year.
