My Town: Muskegon Lake in need of spring cleaning

MUSKEGON, Mich.—Earth Day is less than a month away, but now is the time to sign up to clean up a Muskegon jewel.

Volunteers are needed again this year to clear the Muskegon Lake watershed of trash.  The cleanup will run from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, April 26.  The event is being coordinated by The Muskegon Lake Watershed Partnership, United Way of the Lakeshore and West Michigan United Labor.

Last year, dozens of artists transformed junk and debris from the shoreline into art.  Proceeds from the Muskegon Lake Project artwork went to the Muskegon Lake Watershed Partnership.

To volunteer for this year’s cleanup, contact Kathy Evans by emailing kathy@muskegonlake.org .

This event started in 1963 and since then has given the club an opportunity to help children in a very positive way. Because everyone volunteers, the money raised from the sale goes directly to the YMCA and Camp Pendalouan. The bulk of the money goes to finance camp scholarships for a great number of children in the area.

The public can help in many ways. Donate goods in good condition, like furniture, household goods, office equipment, tools, building materials and supplies. The club will pick donations up at no cost to you. Cash donations along with gift cards or certificates are welcomed. The club will provide a receipt for your tax donations.
