SNAPPED: Volunteers clean-up the Fairgrounds

JACKSON, Wyo. — A team from Community Entry Services Jackson was out in full force yesterday participating in the annual town clean-up. A group of volunteers spent the afternoon cleaning up the area surrounding the Teton County Fairgrounds.

Robbie Marsh, one of the volunteers, said he was motivated to participate in the clean-up because “I like helping save the community.”

The group of 11 volunteers and three staff members spent the afternoon searching for trash around the Teton County Fairgrounds. “We found a bunch,” said Marsh.

Marsh stays busy working three jobs and volunteering in his free time. He works at the Animal Hospital, White Chapel and on the tomato floor at Vertical Harvest. He also volunteers at various non-profits in Jackson. “I help at the Senior Center on Fridays doing meals on wheels,” said Marsh. He also recently began volunteering with Hole Food Rescue as well.

The annual town clean-up has been underway this week. It began on Monday, May 10, and will conclude on Saturday, May 15. Yard waste collection will be held tomorrow, May 14 at the Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The one-day event applies only to residential yard waste.

The group of volunteers from Community Entry Services might go out for another round of collections before the week is up. “We like keeping it clean,” said Marsh adding, “We want to do a pizza party next time.”
