A group of Lafayette residents is coming together to help clean up their community.

Volunteers gathered at the Domingue Center on Wednesday to clean up the basketball courts and paint the stripes outside.

Community cleanup organizers asked residents to "help us help your kids." They say they know the impact the facilities have on the community.

"We were ready to work," said Natasha Leday, executive director of New Day Community Outreach. "We had a vision, we had a mission, but when we got here we saw that there is still work that needs to be done and we need to call on higher officials to help us."
