A dedicated group from Delta Community Living Society (DCLS) took part in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on Tuesday, Oct. 17.
Thirteen program members and support staff participated in the cleanup at Ladner Harbour Park. Although DCLS has participated in the Shoreline Cleanup for the last five years, this is the first time they’ve done it in Ladner. Several bags of debris were pulled from the park, which is a popular recreation area for people and wildlife alike.
“Our goal is to give back to the community we live and work in, and to clean up the debris that poses a risk to the wildlife and people that are here on the trails. Our group enjoyed the opportunity to meet many of the joggers and dog walkers that use the park,” said DCLS Surrey Connections program coordinator Andrew Merrin in a press release.
DCLS is a non-profit community-based organization that provides support to people with developmental disabilities and their families. People supported at DCLS donate countless hours to other non-profit organizations and volunteer initiatives throughout our community, including the Delta Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store, Adopt-a-Street, the Earthwise Society and many others.
