ELLWOOD CITY — Business has declined at Alborn Tires, as it has for many businesses during the coronavirus crisis. So owner Justin Neupauer decided to put the slow time to good use this week.
On Tuesday, Neupauer, three of his employees and a group of about 20 volunteers worked to disinfect and clean up Lawrence Avenue and surrounding areas where there are businesses.
“I just wanted to do something positive for our town because it just such an amazing place,” he said.
The volunteers, keeping all the social distancing rules, spread out over Lawrence Avenue, picking up trash, spraying weeds, disinfecting parking meters, crosswalk buttons, benches and anything the public would touch. Using gloves and protective gear the volunteers disinfected the community plaza tables and the Seventh Street Park.
