National Day of Service

September 15, 2018 * 9 – 11 a.m.

For the National day of service the Kent Stake will be participating with the City of Kent with the TeamUp2Cleanup event. The event is coming this Saturday Sept 15. We will be helping at Clark Lake Park with brush removal and picking up litter at a few other Kent parks. Most of the effort is needed at the Clark Lake Park but additional parks/areas will be available for litter pickup for families with small children. If you are able to help with the heavy underbrush please bring gloves and equipment (clippers, shovels, picks, blackberry brush cutters, etc.).

There will be some gloves and equipment available to use at the park.

The Clark Lake Park gate will be opened for plenty of parking onsite (enter from 240th street). We plan on working from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Please come to the stake center first to get an assigned area and light breakfast (muffins, fruit, water, etc.) between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. We look forward to serving with you on Saturday.

Thank you for supporting your community.
