Community Clean-Up Event Planned
KSAL Staff - April 11, 2015 6:00 am
Volunteers are needed for a Salina community-wide clean-up effort.
Community members are invited to join in the annual Spring Spruce-Up Salina. The Spring Spruce-Up is a community wide collaborative project coordinated through The Volunteer Connection. Volunteers of all ages rally together to improve designated areas, making our community a better place to live.
This year’s projects include exterior painting at Grand Avenue United Methodist Church, Smoky Hill River Cleanup and bank stabilization, storm drain medallion placement, landscaping of area public and agency spaces and collection of household debris, household hazardous waste and unused medications.
Volunteers are needed. All ages are welcome. First-time event volunteers will receive an event t-shirt; returning volunteers are encouraged to wear their orange Volunteer shirts.
The Spring Spruce-Up Salina event is scheduled for Saturday, April 18th, from 7:30 in the morning until noon. The event will kick off at 7:30 am at Grand Avenue United Methodist Church, 304 W. Grand, with a pancake breakfast provided by the local chapter of the NAACP.
