The cleanups will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and volunteers are needed to make the event a success.
Hume Springs resident Jake Cuomo organized the event after noticing an inordinate amount of trash and other items in the parks near his house.
Those interested in lending a hand can meet at 9 a.m. Nov. 10 at the Four Mile Run Park building located at 4109 Mount Vernon Ave. or at either park anytime during the cleanup.
Cuomo asks that volunteers RSVP so an adequate amount of supplies can be ensured. To RSVP, send Cuomo an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2011, Clean Virginia Waterways removed more than 295,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from the state’s beaches, lakes and waterways through similar cleanups.
