Volunteers Needed for Weatherford's Clean the Parks Campaign


Volunteers are needed for the City of Weatherford's Green/Clean/Beautiful

(GCB) "Clean the Parks" litter pickup campaign that is scheduled April 1 through May 31.

The two-month event is being held in conjunction with the Great American Cleanup in Oklahoma, a beautification and community improvement program presented by Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB), a state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful.  Everyone at SWOSU is encouraged to participate in this year's litter pickup effort.

Allysone Moore, chair of Weatherford's effort, said the City of Weatherford has 12 parks containing 650 acres with many picnic and play areas. GCB is looking for volunteer groups to pick up litter.  Other approved locations will be considered such as primary streets throughout the community. The cleanup should take place sometime between April 1 and May 31. Trash bags will be provided to volunteers.
