Wal-Mart workers beautify roadway

May 7, 2007

Lee County --  More than 25 Wal-Mart employees took time out of their day to give back to the community.

Armed with trash bags, the employees set off across the parking lot this morning to pick up trash along Ledo Road. Employees acknowledge that much of the trash along the roadway may come from their customers, so as part of their Personal Sustainability Project, employees are participating in projects that may better their lives.

"Right now we're picking up trash in the community, trying to make the community beautiful, you know, just playing our part in it," said PSP Coordinator Darlene Fowler.

"We're beatifying the community once again, we're joining as teamwork getting everything and hopefully it will catch on with other companies and whatnot and everyone can join in," said Wal-Mart employee Omiann Rios.

Employees say they plan to make the trash pick up a once a week task. Employees are also doing other tasks like walking more, losing weight and trying to be more environmentally friendly.
