The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen will hold its volunteer Pitch-In active event April 22 to 24 throughout the regional district.
The event is being held for the first time and coincides with National Volunteer Week.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of Canadians show their concern for the environment and their communities by participating in Pitch-In Canada projects, the regional district says. These community events provide opportunities to properly dispose of waste, clean-up green spaces and illegal dumpsites, and rejuvenate local neighbourhoods.
“By pitching in and helping clean-up your neighbourhood, you’re making a difference in your community, but you’ll also be getting your steps in,” said Karla Kozakevich, chair of the regional district.
She said building healthy and cohesive communities in the Okanagan-Similkameen is an essential part of the programs and services offered by the regional district.
The Pitch-In event plays a role in helping the regional district support healthy individuals and communities across the region.
