These photos and videos show the 121 volunteers hard at work in Bread and Cheese Creek in the Berkshire area and along the Berkshire Road Tributary on 4/14/12. Together we cut up and removed 8 fallen trees blocking the flow of the stream, over a Forty Yard dumpsters worth of trash and debris (475 trash bags) as well over 2,000 pounds of metal, which included 6 shopping carts, 5 tires, 5 unused shotgun shells, 5 full cans of spray paint, 3 bicycles, 3 cell phones, 2 scooters, 2 TV sets, 2 tire rims, a recliner, a port hole, a car batteries, a lawnmower, a can of paint, a concrete donkey and much, much more!

 

All left over donated food is re-donated to the local food kitchen “Saint Rita's Table”; which hosts dinners for Dundalk's needy and homeless every Monday evening.

 

Although we had help and volunteers from many organizations we would like thank the following: The Ocean Conservancy, Sun Products Corporation, American Rivers, Entenmanns Discount Bakery Outlet of Dundalk, DEPS, Baltimore County Highways, Charlie’s Discount, The Baltimore County Geocache Club, Team HellCamino , Gold’s Gym, Gotugo, Constellation Energy, Towson University and Circle K, and the Boy Scouts all provided lots of hardworking volunteers! ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS – We couldn’t do any of this without you!

 

If we missed your group, please let us know and we will include you as well!

 

We are a not-for-profit organization with no paid positions and absolutely no funding relying completely upon donations to clean and restore the environment in the Dundalk Area.

 

Thank you volunteers and sponsors, we couldn't do it without you!
