Rain Doesn’t Damper Spirits for Cleanup

Volunteers braved the rain to clean up neighborhoods.

The Great American LIttle Pickup in San Jose on March 19 drew 1,600 volunteers who left their cozy homes on a rainy morning to pick up bottles, cans, plastic bags — and many other discarded items — from streets, parks and trails. The volunteers cleaned up sites in all 10 San Jose Council Districts.
