On Saturday, April 17, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. the City of Fate is partnering with Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup. This is the nation’s largest community improvement program, taking place annually each spring. A community that cleans up together is a stronger community!
Volunteers are being asked to sign up to assist in cleaning predetermined locations across Fate.
- Volunteers will meet in Robert Smith Family Park, 1220 CD Boren Parkway at 9 AM and then be sent out to a designated location. Gloves and bags are provided.
- At 11 AM, volunteers will return to the park where ten $50 gift certificates to local businesses will be given to (10) lucky participants.
- Sign up today by filling out a Volunteer Application here.
For those who are unable to join us in the park, or who would like to cleanup your own location or neighborhood, grab a picture and tag @CityofFate on Facebook, don’t forget to add the hashtag #FateCleanup for a chance to win a gift card to a local Fate Business.
