Volunteers brave rain to clean stream
On Sept. 2, despite a very cold and rainy morning, more than 45 dedicated volunteers arrived at Bread and Cheese Creek and filled a 40-yard dumpster with more than four tons of trash and debris they removed from the historic stream and its banks. This included 220 bags of trash, half a truck full of metal to be recycled, eight mattresses, four box springs, four couches, three chairs, a table, and much more.
“Thank you everyone so very much for all your in- credible hard work under such tough conditions,” president/founder John Long said. “Our volunteer dedication to working toward a cleaner, greener, healthier community and environment cannot be topped. Thank you so much!”
Clean Bread and Cheese Creek would also like to thank the Ocean Conservancy and American Rivers for all their assistance and support. The group would also like to thank H&S Bakery for donating rolls and Robert Jones, who made and donated pulled pork and slider rolls, and his wife Tracey, who made brown sugar baked beans, for their generous donations of food to feed hungry and hardworking volunteers. Also, thanks to Gershbecks and Tradepoint Atlantic for donations allowing for the purchase of much-needed supplies. Special thanks also to Baltimore County Highways for supplying a dumpster for the event as well and Towson University for the volunteers they supplied.
Donning boots and ponchos, volunteers got messy and wet for a good cause at the Clean Bread and Cheese Creek cleanup.
Volunteers for Clean Bread and Cheese Creek came together last Saturday to collect more than four tons of trash from local waterways.
