FLINT, MI — The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint and GearUp2Lead have adopted Cook Park at 929 S. Averill Ave. as a Flint city community cleanup project for Friday, Nov. 20 at 3:30 p.m.

Adopt a Park is a program that is jointly supported by United Way of Genesee County and Keep Genesee County Beautiful.

The Adopt a Park program encourages volunteer groups to participate in making a Flint park an attractive, clean, and safe place to gather and play. As part of the program, Keep Genesee County Beautiful provides information and resources to help volunteer groups develop the organizational skills, knowledge and partnerships necessary to adopt and reclaim parks in the city of Flint.

Keep Genesee County Beautiful invites neighborhood groups, block clubs and associations, community and civic groups, nonprofit organizations, businesses and other interested parties to become involved in the Adopt a Park program. These volunteer groups assume responsibility for the general cleanliness and condition of a park.
Funding for the Keep Genesee County Beautiful Adopt a Park Program is made possible by the Ruth Mott Foundation Keep America Beautiful/Lowe’s Foundation.

Anyone interested in volunteering for the Cook Park Adopt a Park project, please contact Delrico Shine at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint at 810-249-3413 or by cell at 810-336-4432.
