The Keep Antioch Beautiful Committee is seeking volunteers for the 2014 Keep Antioch Beautiful volunteer cleanup event. Over the past 4 years, over 1,500 volunteers have turned out for this all-volunteer event and 30,000 pounds of trash was collected and deposited in Allied Waste dumpsters located at local schools.
The 5th annual event once again chaired by former Antioch Councilmember Martha Parsons and this year is co-chaired by Antioch Mayor Wade Harper and will be held on Saturday, April 26th from 8:30-11 AM. A free volunteer thank you lunch will be served following the event at Contra Loma Regional Park.
Once again, schools can earn money through participation. Volunteers just need to write the name of the school that they wish to support on the top of their waiver. For the Elementary, Middle and High Schools, there will be cash prizes for the 1st ($500), 2nd ($300) and 3rd ($200) for the most volunteers checked in.
This is a great opportunity to give back to your community while earning money for your child’s, grandchildren’s, neighbor’s schools.
Many individuals and organizations are supporting this event and the event is funded fully by the following sponsors: City of Antioch, Antioch Unified School District, Allied Waste, Honeywell, Walmart, Arts & Cultural Foundation of Antioch, NRG Energy, East Bay Regional Parks, Pinky’s Klassy Kar Wash, Paintball Park, Paradise Skate, Dick Straub (In Memoriam), Jim Lanter Antioch State Farm Insurance Agent, Antioch Coin & Jewelry and Central Self Storage of Antioch.
