RAINELLE -

The town of Rainelle is looking for volunteers to help clean up the streets in time for their birthday celebration next month.

It's part of West Virginia's Make It Shine Day, which aims to make the state the cleanest in the nation.

On April 6, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. teams of volunteers will pick up litter in assigned parts of Rainelle.

Last year more than 60 people showed up to help.

Volunteers willing to help are asked to sign up at Rainelle Town Hall or contact Mayor Andy Pendleton at andypen241@msn.com or call her at (304) 438-7191.
