CARE for the Cape and Islands has partnered with the US Army Corps of Engineers Park Rangers to present a socially distanced community volunteer opportunity. All are invited to join in by cleaning along the Cape Cod Canal or a location of one’s choosing through Monday, October 19.
Participants are asked to share photos for a chance to win a prize pack from CARE and T-Mobile USA. Post photos during the event by using #TakeCareCapeCod or #ThinkLikeIts1620 to enter. Donations of $16.20 or more to the Think Like It’s 1620 Campaign to support one or more water filling stations are encouraged and appreciated.
Volunteers need to sign up for a specific location ahead of time to allow for social distancing and to ensure that as much of the canal as possible is covered. Volunteers may sign up for two-hour time slots at one of 11 designated locations along both sides of the canal. A map and registration details can be found at www.careforthecapeandislands.org/calendar-2. The events page also provides tips on how to prevent additional trash during cleanups.
