The Good Sam Club is expecting record numbers May 14-15 for its National Cleanup Day, which adopted a theme this year of “Helping to Preserve our Public Lands.”
“The increase in participants this year illustrates the overall success of the program,” said Sue Bray, executive director of Good Sam Club. “So far, we have more than 150 chapters participating nationwide and anticipate filling 4,000 bags of trash. We are certain that as the event draws closer we will see the numbers steadily increase.”
Since 1996, Good Sam’s nearly 1 million member families across the U.S. and Canada have volunteered to participate in the project, aimed at beautifying campgrounds and parks.
Take Pride in America also is taking part in the cleanup effort. On May 13, the national initiative will be joining the Tennessee Good Sam members in cleaning up the James E. Ward Agricultural Center in Lebanon with a goal of filling more than 150 bags of trash.
