  • Last week, a group of teenagers from Camp Best Friends worked on an arts and crafts project at Perkerson Park in Capitol View, making their anti-litter campaign logo out of recycled litter.



On Tuesday, July 23, a group of teenagers from Camp Best Friends, their counselors, and an artistic team from the Creatives Project gathered for one last time at Perkerson Park in Capitol View to finish the first phase of the Do-Good Anti-Littering Initiative, an arts-based project and education campaign that had them joining forces over seven weeks this summer.

The anti-litter initiative is an ongoing effort that will continue through the fall, under the direction of Neda Abghari, executive director of the Creatives Project, an arts nonprofit involved in community outreach projects in various Atlanta neighborhoods. The Capitol View project is the recipient of Creative Loafing's Do Good Campaign fundraising and a matching donation from sponsor Home Depot Foundation. The effort began earlier this year and was initially reported in CL's Neighborhood Guide issue.
