LAS CRUCES— Need some community service hours? One local program is in need of volunteers.
The Keep Las Cruces Beautiful program is looking for volunteers to help with the Great American Cleanup scheduled for April 16. The event will take place from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Volunteers will receive a “Toss No Mas” t-shirt, along with a free lunch hosted by Wal-Mart.
The GAC is a nationwide event focusing on litter cleanup and beautification. Last year, the GAC picked up an estimated nine tons of litter throughout the city. This year's goal is to collect double last year's amount.
Keep Las Cruces Beautiful, part of the Las Cruces Police Department's Codes Enforcement Section, is asking volunteers to pre-register for the cleanup by calling 575-528-4723, or by registering online by clicking here  and clicking the Keep Las Cruces Beautiful link.
For more information on the Great American Cleanup, contact Craig Fenske at 575-528-4723 or TTY at 575-528-4197.
