Participants can also help out by bringing a handful of plastic shopping bags which are the perfect size for our little ones to carry.Once the trash pick-up is complete, all participants are invited to reconvene for a fun Green Up lunch reception at the Rec Center to celebrate a job well done!
Come ready to get dirty! Please wear appropriate clothing for an outdoor event, closed toe shoes are recommended and don’t forget the sunscreen! Caring Cubs will have some gloves and gardening tools on hand, but feel free to bring your own (just make sure to mark it with your name!).tional Li
