Growing Green With Pride in Camp Springs 10-19-19



The County Executive, Angela Alsobrooks has launch the “Growing Green with Pride” which is the community clean-up program for Prince George’s County. County Executive Alsobrooks is requesting that you, citizens of this County for a day of beautification.  We will plant trees, shrubs and flowers to beautify our communities while picking up roadside litter and removing illegally dumped material to clean our County roadways.

The “Growing Green with Pride” event is scheduled for Saturday, October 19, 2019.  The Camp Springs Civic Association, Inc (CSCA) will be participating in the community clean-up event scheduled for October 19, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

We are soliciting volunteers to participate in this collaborative effort to keep our Community clean.  If you are interested in joining us for the “Growing Green With Pride” clean-up, please meet us on Saturday, October 19 at the Thrift Store parking lot located at 6307 Allentown Road (Allentown and Old Branch Avenue) at 8:00 am at which time you will be assigned an area and receive supplies. The areas that are scheduled to be cleaned are: Old Branch Avenue from Allentown Road to Manchester Drive; Allentown Road, from underpass on Allentown Road to Brinkley Road and Brinkley Road from Allentown Road to Temple Hills Road.

Please note that you will be provided with a safety vest, litter grabber, trash bags and gloves. However, we are asking that you bring your own gloves because the County provides thin plastic gloves and for your safety it is recommended that you use garden or work gloves.  Just a reminder that the safety vest and litter grabber will need to be return at the end of the clean-up.

We are asking for your support in keeping our community clean by showing up on Saturday, October 19, 2019 “Growing Green with Pride”

If you have any questions, please email at

Thank you,
