DENVER (CBS4)– Cheesman Park is a jewel in the middle of Denver, but it can always use a little TLC, especially since it’s located right in the middle of densely populated neighborhoods. That’s why about 75 volunteers rolled up their sleeves and stepped in to help clean the area on Monday.
Crews hit the ground running at 9 a.m. and finished around noon.READ MORE: Evacuations Ordered For Sylvan Lake State Park Visitors, Some Eagle County Residents Due To Wildfire
This is all part of a nationwide program for Oroweat Bread. The baker teamed up with Denver’s Parks and Recreation Department to spruce up the park, doing everything from mulching to picking up trash, even re-painting street curbs.READ MORE: How Cycling 29,029 Vertical Feet During 24-Hour Summer Solstice Ride Is Helping Fight Homelessness
The bread company says it is celebrating a return to all things natural, and – naturally – that includes giving back to the community.
“Because the community gives to us,” Oroweat Director of Sales, Tony Miller explained. “Our families live in this great community, and to give back feels really good. Definitely want to help with the parks to clean up the environment.”MORE NEWS: Growing Wildfires Trigger Air Quality Alert Including Vail, Glenwood Springs, Craig And Meeker
