PARSIPPANY — On May 11, Parsippany High School (PHS) Environmental Club members volunteered their time and effort to the Keep Morris County Litter Free educational program. This state-wide campaign was held by the New Jersey Clean Communities Program. It was sponsored by the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority, which supplied gloves, bags, and a campaign banner.
The PHS Environmental Club, advised by Nancy Lennon and Monika Castillo and the club’s officers Mahi Patel, Maira Can, Vanessa Sanchez, and Yashasvi Nekkanti, organized and participated in the cleanup with many club members.
The students collected litter for two hours and covered two acres of PHS school grounds, resulting in many bags of recyclables and garbage. The PHS PTSA and President Liz Kadian supplied refreshments for the group, which was much appreciated.
Due to the student’s participation, a $600 grant will be given to PHS Environmental Club to purchase recycling supplies.
