(Apple Valley)– If one small act of kindness can create a positive ripple throughout the universe, then you can pick up trash in Apple Valley and save the world!

Join us Saturday, April 14 for Community Clean Up Day from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Community service organizations, schools, churches, clubs and individual volunteers are invited to participate in this free event. Teams are provided with trash bags and gloves and assigned an area to clean. In return, participants get event T-shirts and lunch while supplies last. Volunteers must sign up in advance to get supplies, assignments and fill out a liability waiver. To help make a difference in the Town of Apple Valley call Special Events at (760) 240-7000 x 7071.
