‘Take Back Our Neighborhood’ group picks up syringes, drug paraphernalia, garbage at Everett park
EVERETT, Wash. -- Garfield Park in Everett was buzzing with parents and kids Wednesday night -- all in good fun and all for a good cause. This was the second “Kids Cleanup”, organized by the Facebook group “Take Back Our Neighborhood Everett.” The parents do a sweep of the park first, looking for anything dangerous like syringes or other drug paraphernalia. Then they walk through a second time with their children, all wearing closed toe shoes and who clean up any garbage they can find.
