MLK Day of Service - Margaret Pace Park Clean Up
Please join in giving back to our community in celebration of MLK. Lets clean up our beautiful Margaret Pace Park!
We will meet at the entrance by the playground (In front of the 1800 Club Condominium), and will provide clean up supplies (buckets, bags, gloves, sanitizer). Please dress in comfortable clothing and bring water. If you bring any minors, please ensure they are with you at all times.
Volunteers are participating at their own risk, and assume all liability
Volunteers are responsible for their own actions
We want volunteers to be safe and have an enjoyable volunteer experience and to do they need to use common sense.
Be advised that there may be sharp objects including rocks, glass and sometimes hypodermic needles.
Do not climb on or over rocky shorelines while carrying something in your hands (bucket, bag or pickers) Should you lose your balance you will need to hands to break your fall. If you have something in your hands, we don’t want you to break your fall on your head!!
Always LOOK before picking up
Do not touch a needle! If needles are found by volunteers, they may contact the host. If the host desires, a best practice is to carefully pick up the needle and put it INSIDE a water bottle and put the cap back on to prevent harm to anyone else and throw the bottle away.
Do not put a loose needle/syringe inside a garbage bag where it could poke out and hurt someone.
Similarly, Do not put any kind of large sharp or rusty object inside a garbage bag where it could poke out and cut someone carrying that bag.
Volunteers should be aware of branches in mangrove areas as those are the most common minor injuries—scrapes from wood branches.
Volunteers should not touch anything that makes them uncomfortable. Focus on easy recognizable plastic. Leave natural debris, dead animals etc
