AN ENTHUSIASTIC CREW OF VOLUNTEERS STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE TO SPRING CLEAN CHRISTIE PITS PARK
Despite a continual drizzling of rain this morning, an enthusiastic crew of volunteers met at Christie Pits to partake in the annual spring cleanup of the park that was coordinated by the Friends of Christie Pits Park (FCPP).
With garbage and recycling bags supplied by the City of Toronto in hand, eager volunteers led by FCPP Chairperson Monica Gupta combed into the vast expanse of park space to cleanup all sorts of discarded garbage ranging from cigarette butts, coffee cups, water bottles, plastic utensils, newspapers, magazines, candy wrappers, tea bags, corrugated cardboard, food containers, plastic wrap, popsicle sticks, fruit peelings, beer cans, bottle caps, shot glasses, etc.
Since Toronto Playgrounds Baseball is a very active participant in the use of Christie Pits Park for its baseball program, the TP Baseball Committee has always had an affinity to support the efforts of volunteer organizations like the FCPP that make it a priority to preserve and promote the use of the Christie Pits for the entire community that surrounds it.
At the end of the morning, it was safe to say that Christie Pits Park was even more beautiful after the cleanup effort.
Many thanks especially to all the volunteers who took the time come down to help out with the cleanup. And the TP Baseball Committee wishes to thank Monica and the FCPP for organizing initiatives like this that make our community the gem that it is.
