Hundreds of folks got out to help clean up Shreveport on Saturday for the Love Shreveport campaign. Several local groups signed up to focus on specific neighborhoods. The volunteers started at 8am and wrapped up at noon at the Fairgrounds with some grilled hot dogs.

More than 10,000 pounds of garbage was picked up around the city. The Shreveport Police Department team of 62 members brought in the biggest pile of garbage with more than 8,000 pounds (not including the tires they gathered).

In Bossier City, volunteers picked up more than 27,000 pounds of trash all around the city. More than 700 area residents stepped up to help clean up the community.
