Volunteers sought for Sparwood cleanup

Wear old clothes and gather with your club, workplace, or family to help cleanup Sparwood on April 23 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

From April 18 – April 23, we are once again looking for volunteers to help clean up Sparwood from the garbage accumulated over the winter as part of PITCH- IN CANADA WEEK, a national campaign to clean up the environment.

We want to show environmental leadership and instil pride in the beauty of our community. By picking up garbage and litter we will become more aware of what’s being thrown away, what could have been recycled and we’ll also have a better understanding of the consequences of littering.

Our big cleanup day will be April 23 from 9 a.m. – noon but groups can participate all week.

A staging area will be set up at the East Kootenay Community Credit Union Sparwood Branch where volunteers will be supplied with garbage bags, gloves, and high-vis vests (if desired). After the cleanup there will be a barbecue provided by Lilac Terrace, for all participants. The BBQ will also be available to the public as part of a fundraiser for Lilac Terrace.

Any group or individual that registers before April 15 will be entered into a draw for some fabulous prizes. For more information or to register, contact Jessica Wheeler at 250-425-6829 or email [email protected]

All community groups and individuals are encouraged to participate!
