The young-professional organization Give Back Cincinnati debuted a new effort Saturday called Clean Up the Town.

From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., volunteers worked in Over-the-Rhine with other downtown organizations to clean trash and litter from the area. The effort began at Republic Street and branched out.

"Our dream is that the sense of caring shared with the citizens will be spread throughout the community," said the group's Web site.

Give Back Cincinnati, founded in December 2000, has nearly 850 active volunteers between the ages of 18 and 35.
