On Saturday, April 18, 2015, the American Express Company and HandsOn Broward participated in a workday at Tradewinds Park & Stables in Coconut Creek. Sixty-nine dedicated and hard-working volunteers generously spent three hours assisting staff with debris removal from a natural area within the park, as well as picking up rocks, old tires, used metal, and other trash from the future horse-retirement pasture. More than a ton of miscellaneous debris and half a ton of rocks were removed from the affected sites.
"The work completed last Saturday was a tremendous help to our staff," Tradewinds Manager Tim Waln said after the event. "It gives us a sigh of relief to know that people do care and can make a difference."
Thank you, American Express and HandsOn Broward!
