Thank YOU for all your hard work during Earth Day, Comcast Cares Day
Thank you one and all...

Over 1,400 volunteers? Wow!

We would like to thank all of the volunteers who joined us for Earth Day, Comcast Cares Day this year on April 25th. We appreciate all the hardwork that the volunteers, City of Lawrence, Comcast and the staff and volunteers of Groundwork Lawrence put it into this event to make it a success. 

You helped to beautify almost 40 sites throughout the city!
(photos & list of sites below)

In the days, weeks, months and years following this event, let us continue to take pride in our City of Lawrence and to keep our home clean year-round!

That being said, we look forward to seeing you all again for more beautification and restoration events like the Spicket River Clean-Up in September and Earth Day, Comcast Cares Day again next year!

Thank you,

Heather McMann
Executive Director
Groundwork Lawrence
