Volunteers - Join the Adopt-a-Street Team

Posted On Monday April 26, 2021

Adopt-a-Street is looking for volunteers to join the team!

Volunteers collect litter in a park or on a sidewalk of their choice once a month. The City provides all the necessary equipment. The end result is a beautified community.

So, how does it work?

  • Register online or by requesting a form at the Cornwall Public Library.
  • Choose a path, sidewalk, or park that you will maintain once a month.
  • The library will call you to set up a time to pick up your supplies.

“Everyone who participates in the program shows their civic pride and everyone benefits from a cleaner and more attractive community as a result of this significant collective effort,” said Pam Carson, one of Adopt-a-Street’s volunteer coordinators.

“As always the Cornwall Public Library is proud to partner with the City of Cornwall in this ongoing beautification project.  Why not turn it into a family friendly outing to teach our children the importance and commitment to our environment!” said Helen McCutcheon, CEO/Chief Librarian, Cornwall Public Library.
