Windy weather and cloudy skies didn’t faze volunteers who gathered at the Tillman’s Corner Chamber of Commerce to participate in the Great American Cleanup event.
Keep Mobile Beautiful spokesman Bob Haskins said, in an earlier press release, the events that took place today is because April is the “Great American Cleanup Month.”
“Hundreds of volunteers from across the Mobile area will lend a hand to spruce up their streets, parks, neighborhoods and waterways,” said Haskins. “To help make this national initiative a local success, Keep Mobile Beautiful is providing volunteers with cleanup supplies including trash bags, litter grabbers, gloves and safety vests.”
Volunteers arrived at the Chamber offices at eight this morning and will work through noon Saturday. A lunch, door prizes and free t-shirts will be given to thank everyone for their efforts to make the Tillman’s Corner area litter-free.
