Operation Clean Sweep, a New Bedford based anti-litter organization, will hold a neighborhood cleanup on Saturday, June 16, 2012 in Ward 6 from 8:30 am until Noon. The Ward 6 cleanup will be held in conjunction with the Cove Street Neighborhood Family Fun Day. Headquarters will be located at the Loretta Bourque Park on Ruth Street between Salisbury and Ashley Streets. The cleanup will be sponsored by Me & Ed’s Family Restaurant.
Students, individuals, families and community service groups are encouraged to volunteer with Operation Clean Sweep to earn community service hours, demonstrate support for the neighborhood, and pride in the community.
Me & Ed’s Family Restaurant will provide breakfast for volunteers in the morning and lunch will be provided by Domino’s Pizza, “The Official Pizza” of Operation Clean Sweep.
Volunteers are encouraged to pre-register by visiting www.operationcleansweep.net or call (508) 979-1493.
Pre-registration is not required but it is preferred so that organizers are better able to plan for the needs of the day. Volunteers are asked to wear closed toe shoes and clothing appropriate for the weather. Tools and gloves provided. Walk-ups are always welcome and all volunteer names will be entered into a drawing for a covered trash barrel!
Anyone interested in hosting a cleanup is encouraged to call (508) 979-1493 for more information.
