Playing it Forward Completes Cleanup for Adopt-A-Place Program
Local nonprofit Playing it Forward Youth Sports Foundation completed its second quarterly cleanup on June 30, 2012, for the Firestone Adopt-A-Place program. Volunteers with the organization cleaned up the east side of Colorado Boulevard from Sable Avenue to Pine Cone Avenue.
The Playing it Forward Youth Sports Foundation (www.playingitforward.org/) was started in 2011 to provide children with necessary equipment and financial support to participate in organized youth sports.
The Adopt-A-Place program is designed for local organizations, businesses and individuals to come together to combat litter problems in the community to help keep Firestone a beautiful community to live, work and enjoy. The program requires that the group do at least one cleanup a quarter in the adopted place.
Started in 2005, the Adopt-A-Place Program began when the Town of Firestone and its residents recognized the need to clean up litter in the community. By participating in the Adopt-A-Place program, community groups, businesses and individuals help the Town of Firestone reallocate funds, time and manpower to other much-needed programs and projects, including park construction, upgrading and maintenance, trail improvement projects and more.
