Thank you for volunteering with us at our Earth Day clean-ups in 2015. Together, we cleaned-up and beautified 18 parks and green spaces throughout Abington township.
Our 244 volunteers picked up 1455 pounds of litter and planted 439 trees and flowers. Cleanups are a great way to bring your community together and make a difference in
your neighborhood. It adds up too! We count how much litter we pick up and report
to the Great American Cleanup of PA. Throughout Pennsylvania last year, 140,000 volunteers picked up over 6 million pounds of trash, and planted over 22,000 trees
and flowers. What a difference! For event details, click on this Earth Day link.
Thanks to Commissioners Larry Jones, Jimmy DiPlacido, Tom Hecker, Lori Schreiber,
and Carol Gillespie for cleaning-up!
