Thank you to all of our enthusiastic and resourceful volunteers who made our Jenkintown clean-up a huge success! We were joined by members of the community in addition to a large group from Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in Aston, PA. We worked up and down Old York Road, weeding and picking up trash from along the store fronts and sidewalks. Thanks to our volunteers, the downtown area was clean and ready for Jenkintown’s Festival of the Arts! Not to mention, our efforts helped contribute to cleaner waterways downstream. Despite the last-minute change of location, we had a tremendous turnout and made a big impact in the borough of Jenkintown.
This event was part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup. A special thank you to Fill A Bagel for providing our hungry volunteers with delicious bagels!
