Post-Flood Clean-up THIS Saturday and Sunday on Mud Island

May 17, 2011

During the flooding, a lot of people wanted to know how they could help.

I think we all know we put them to work sandbagging.

Now that the water has receded, Memphis City Beautiful is calling for volunteers for a post-flood clean-up *this* weekend at Greenbelt Park on Mud Island. 

Volunteers should meet at the south entrance of Greenbelt Park at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 21, or 1 p.m. Sunday, May 22nd.

If the parking lot at Greenbelt is still flooded, park at Miss Cordelia’s.  

Volunteers will be picking up trash left behind by receding flood waters along the Greenbelt Park area and the Wolf River Harbor. 

Volunteers will only work in the areas that are on dry land. They will not go into the water or into any brush or overgrowth.

Memphis City Beautiful will provide water, bags and tools. Volunteers should bring a pair of work gloves.

Riverfront Development Corporation will do trash pick up of any bags or items collected.

For more info, contact Cyndy Grivich Tucker with Memphis City Beautiful at 522-1135.
