Another neighborhood beautifying project took place at St. Casimir Catholic School at 2736 O’Donnell St. A group of students and the school staff helped paint colorful murals on the storm drains around the school and the adjacent church.
Students were given a lesson on the importance of storm water management by the non-profit Blue Water Baltimore. They were then asked to create four designs and a slogan about the importance of clean water.
“ This project was a part of a greater project called Paint it Blue, in which Blue Water Baltimore is helping to facilitate storm drain art projects with five religious institutions in Southeast Baltimore,” stated Blue Water Baltimore. “Storm drain art is a fun and colorful way to engage your community, brighten your neighborhood drains, and raise awareness about the importance of working to keep our streets clean.”
