September 21, 2019 was International Coastal Cleanup day, and teams from Mobile and Robertsdale Coca-Cola UNITED were there to lend their support to this worthy cause. Alabama People Against a Littered State (PALS) first began in 1987, and Coca-Cola UNITED is proud to be a regular supporter.
PALS around the Canal
The team from Mobile were tireless as they worked around Theodore Industrial Canal, a 110+ acre industrial area that offers direct access to the Gulf of Mexico in Theodore, Alabama. Volunteers decked out in Coca-Cola t-shirts spent their morning clearing litter along the streets, and having fun while doing it!
PALS in the Park
The Robertsdale team worked around May Day Park, which was opened in 1887 and was a festival site for over 60 years. Offering a playground, fishing pier, and beach & water access for canoes and kayaks, this park is a popular recreational site on Mobile Bay. The Robertsdale team did a fantastic job clearing the park of litter, even bringing along their children to teach them the importance of responsible garbage disposal.
We thank our Coca-Cola UNITED volunteers for taking time our of their busy weekend to make a difference in our local communities. Way to go!
