PEORIA (HOI) - Keep Peoria Beautiful is staying true to their name by blessing others with the gift of landscaping.
They grabbed their shovels, spread some stone, and planted flowers helping to beautify the new sign at the Peoria Humane Society Education Center and Animal Adoption Center.
The new sign was put up recently symbolizing a 40-year partnership between the Humane Society and Adoption center, but it needed a little added touch.
"We're just very grateful. This is making the sign even more beautiful than it is." said President of the Humane Society, Lisa Mundwiller
"Our property is beautiful, with the trees around. It is large area, but it does need some extra care." said Kitty Yanko, the Humane Society Education Coordinator
"You know it's kind of like taking care of the front of your house. You add plants, you add beautification." said Kayse Doering, President of Keep Peoria Beautiful
The newly landscaped sign is just one of the several projects the group has planned with their volunteers and they said they're always looking for more ideas.
