MARTIN COUNTY -- Keep Martin Beautiful is looking for volunteers of all ages to participate in county-wide cleanup events that will take place on Saturday, May 4, as part of the local Extreme Martin Makeover and national Great American Cleanup.
This year, KMB hopes to reach all corners of the county with the help of community members who are committed to improving the quality of life in Martin County.
"With the help of dedicated volunteers, together we can beautify beaches, remove litter and debris from parks, and ensure safer, cleaner neighborhoods for everyone," said Keep Martin Beautiful President Rhonda Irons.
Neighborhood groups, civic clubs, schools, scouts, businesses and individuals can all be part of the Extreme Martin Makeover. Individual volunteers and smaller groups are invited to join Keep Martin Beautiful for a beach cleanup on May 4 at Jensen Sea Turtle Beach from 8 a.m. to noon.
Additional cleanup locations include the Rio Skate Park and Banner Lake community. All volunteers will be provided with supplies including trash bags, gloves, water and T-shirts, while supplies last.
Volunteers can register for one of these cleanup locations, or organize their own cleanup activity, by calling (772) 781-1222 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
