their parks once a month to pick up trash, rake sand, pull weeds, remove
graffiti and make lists of any broken equipment. Some groups that have already
adopted parks include Cactus Patch Girl Scouts, Estrella Mountain Elementary
School PTO, Goodyear Firefighters Local 4005, Palm Valley Church, Pioneer Ford,
Phoenix Military Entrance Processing Station, Refinery Christian Church, Super
TARGET, and the YMCA Teen Action Council.
your chance to encourage your service organizations, youth groups, church
groups, clubs, neighborhoods and even extended families to sign on for a
meaningful activity that really makes a difference in your community. Many
volunteers enjoy combining their Adopt a Park tasks with a picnic, outdoor
games, or old-fashioned relaxation.
