Pinellas County Sheriff’s Deputies in the Community Policing Unit, in partnership with Keep Pinellas Beautiful and 1-800-GOT-JUNK will assist in a clean-up project this weekend. The clean-up project will be held on Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. The clean-up project will take place in a homeless encampment in the Highpoint area on 142nd Avenue between U.S. 19 and 62nd Street.
The wooded area being cleaned has been frequented by many transients. Various items and trash have been left behind from those doing so. Monthly trash clean-ups involving some residents from Safe Harbor have been initiated in this area but a larger scale clean-up is needed.
Volunteers are needed for this event and are encouraged to come out and help. Ages fourteen and up are able to volunteer, with ages fourteen to sixteen being accompanied by an adult. There will be trash grabbers, bags, gloves and water provided to volunteers. Parking is available on the side of the road on the county easement.
For more information or to register as a volunteer, please contact Keep Pinellas Beautiful Coordinator, Chris Johnson at (727) 533-0402.
