The next Pick Up The Poconos Day is scheduled for Sept. 26.
The event has been a growing success in each of its first two years in Monroe County and is now expanding to Carbon, Pike & Wayne counties. During this ongoing public health crisis, this is one thing we can do to make a difference for our region.
If you would like to sign up or get a group of family or friends to do so, please go to PickUpThePoconos.com to register. The group will work with townships and boroughs to determine which roads/public spaces need cleanup the most! And once they reach the Sept. 12 volunteer sign-up deadline, organizers will assign groups to those predetermined locations across the four counties.
Anyone can help by providing resources, municipal manpower for safety, dumpsters, moral support, anything.
