Two college students believe that cleaning up Kinston's streets will keep crime off of them.
The pair came up with the "K Project" to help one neighborhood after the June murders of Thomas Hinton and Deputy Warren "Sneak" Lewis.
Kaci Hill and Lindsey Stapelford say they're hoping at least 100 volunteers will help with the event, and say they're hoping criminals will take notice.
After the cleanup, Hill and Stapleford say they'll hang wreaths in rememberance of Hinton and investigator Lewis ---as reminder of the loss to their families and their community.
The community clean up project will take place Saturday July 23 in the Mitchelltown area from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Volunteers will take part in activities to beautify the community such as cutting grass, planting flowers, removing graffiti and picking up trash.
