Staff Collects Roadside Litter

LABELLE, FL. -- Staff members from the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties participated in “Florida Health Cleans Up!” on April 1st to emphasize that walking is a great way to get physically active and to support the Department of Transportation’s “Roadside Litter Prevention Program”. Twelve bags of garbage (weighing 26 pounds) was collected. The Florida Department of Health is part of a statewide effort to keep Florida’s roads and highways clean and beautiful for both residents and visitors. 

Participants included: Pat Dobbins, Brenda Barnes, Mary Ruth Prouty, Leo Rodriguez, Pam Barnett, Vanessa Fischel, Carol Leib, Melba Zavala, Maria Narez, Mona Kajkowski and Amber Conley.

Florida Health Cleans Up! is a venture of Healthiest Weight Florida, a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not-for-profit organizations, businesses and entire communities to help Florida’s children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living. The Department’s goal is to encourage physical activity and walking while emphasizing how small choices affect your health and environment.
