Rufus wants you join our new CLEAN (Community Litter and Environment Action Network) Frisco program. Sign up at FriscoTexas.gov/volunteer. Scout an area where you can pick up trash or remove weeds in one of our parks (locations noted online). Pose with collection and send a selfie to volunteer@ friscotexas.gov. For every five hours you log picking up trash, you’ll be eligible to receive a reward, courtesy of our sponsor's Raising Cane's, Chik-fil-A or In-N-Out Burger. Once a month, Rufus will select the most 'PAWSitively Green' volunteer who will be featured in the next newsletter. So get out there and help keep Frisco PAWSitively CLEAN!
