BOYLE HEIGHTS — More than 120 volunteers celebrated the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. today by cleaning up the campus of Roosevelt High School as part of a national day of service in honor of the civil rights leader.

This morning’s  clean up, which  was intended to create a safe and visually appealing space for students to learn, was undertaken as part of AltaMed Health Services’ 4th annual Roosevelt High School’s Beautification Day.  “As a graduate from Roosevelt High School, I couldn’t be more excited and proud of the engagement we’ve received from AltaMed employees and community members to give the school the attention and appreciation it deserves,” said AltaMed President Cástulo de la Rocha.
