Service groups invited to ‘adopt’ city parks, facilities
Claremont’s Community and Human Services Department is looking for service-minded organizations, businesses and individuals to take part in the city’s Project ADOPT program.
Project ADOPT is a volunteer opportunity that promotes ownership of city facilities and parks. Program participants will choose a project area, which may include a park, street, median, right of way, sidewalk or facility. Participants will then commit to removing litter from surrounding areas, plant flowers, pull weeds, rake leaves, clean benches and report concerns. Some individuals may prefer to provide ongoing donations that will help offset the expenses for city personnel to perform these duties.
After the completion of 60 volunteer hours at the adoption site, participants will receive a certificate of adoption and a sign recognizing their contribution.
For more information about joining Project ADOPT, contact Lauren Marshall at 399-5356.
