ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Mayor is asking residents to roll up their sleeves and help clean up the community.
Mayor Dorothy Hubbard is hoping residents will answer her 'call to service.'
When they started the program in 2012, 84 teams signed up to help clean up.
In 2014, 143 teams helped out.
So far in 2016, 162 teams have signed up to clean up the city and county.
Mayor Hubbard said it's important for volunteers to continue joining year round.
She's also proud to say it's made Albany and the county a prettier place to live.
"We are encouraging a community pride, we know young people need to be involved in these kinds of things, and understand how they need to give back to this community," said Mayor Hubbard.
The Mayor will hold a meeting in June to thank all teams and keep encouraging others to get involved.
Anyone interested in volunteering can call 311 to sign up.
