Thanks to all 400 volunteers who made a Great Earth Day in Lawrence!

Earth Day 2010

What a day! 400 volunteers all over the City of Lawrence picked up trash, raked leaves, built garden beds, planted flowers, planted trees and celebrated the Earth and Lawrence. We'd like to thank Comcast for all of their volunteer and logistics support and for making Lawrence a part of Comcast Cares Day- a national day of service by the Comcast Cable Company.


*THANK YOU to all our supporters and sponsors: City of Lawrence, City of Lawrence DPW and Recycling, Comcast, Allied Waste, Covanta Energy, Lawrence General Hospital, Sal's Pizza, Jackson Lumber, and Whole Foods!!

A big thanks and "Job Well Done" goes to volunteers from Comcast, Lawrence Senior Center, Community Day Charter School, The City of Lawrence DPW, The City of Lawrence, Lawrence High School, Lawrence General Hospital, Kohls, and Northern Essex Community College.

If you would like to still volunteer, maybe the park near your house or business needs some attention, please call Kathryn at Groundwork Lawrence. We have supplies of trash bags and gloves for folks to use and if necessary some rakes or shovels to borrow. Maybe you have a crew of individuals who would like to do weekly cleanups like our friends at the Plus Company, but you're not sure where to start. Please give us a call!
