(FREEPORT, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D - Freeport) partnered with New York State Senator Kevin Thomas and Freeport-based nonprofit The Green Army to host an Earth Day community cleanup on Saturday, April 22 at the Freeport Brookside Preserve.

During the event, the Green Army assisted volunteers and provided gloves, masks, collection tools, and garbage bags to remove debris from the preserve. Over 40 volunteers cleared 100 bags of trash and completed other tasks to give the preserve some much-deserved springtime TLC.

“The Brookside Preserve was a wonderful place to celebrate Earth Day and reaffirm our commitment to protecting our planet,” Legislator Mulé said. “I thank Senator Thomas, the Green Army, and all of our volunteers for all they did to beautify the preserve for residents to enjoy this spring.”

“As we celebrate Earth Day, it's important that we not only recognize the beauty of our planet but also take action to protect it,” said Senator Thomas. “That’s why I am proud to lead this community clean-up effort with Legislator Mule, volunteers from The Green Army organization and residents to protect our environment. Let's work together to make our community cleaner, greener, and healthier for all.”
