BANGOR – Area children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism, their family members and their caregivers will participate in Downeast Horizons’ annual Earth Day Clean-Up on Wednesday, April 22nd.
Downeast Horizons is partnering for this year’s cleanup with the Bangor Parks and Recreation Department. The group will help clean up the Williams Playground, on the corner of Newberry and Hancock Street, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Bangor Parks and Recreation will provide cleaning supplies and volunteers are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy after the work is completed.
“This is a wonderful opportunity where children and adults with development can give back to their community,” said Anthony Zambrano, Executive Director of Downeast Horizons.
Since 1974 Downeast Horizons (www.dehi.org) has been devoted to the establishment of community-based services for local people with developmental disabilities and their families. Downeast Horizons is a non-profit organization helping to serve these needs in Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis and Waldo Counties, including programs in Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, Deer Isle, Bangor and Brewer.
