FRYSC needs community's help to make SUDS success

During Spruce Up Dawson Springs Day and Earth Day 2019, Kimberly Hoover, a student at Dawson Springs Independent Schools, holds up a plant and equipment that she will use to plant the bush outside the gym.

An annual city clean-up is coming to town and it relies on volunteers in may areas to make it successful, according to a news release from Jonathon Storms, the director of the Dawson Springs Independent Schools Family Resource and Youth Service Center.

FRYSC is in charge of organizing Spruce Up Dawson Springs Day. This year, the event will be from 12:30 to 2:50 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, or Earth Day.

Those who are interested in helping can do so in a variety of ways.

First, volunteers are needed. The volunteers will work on various projects, including street clean-ups, chaperoning students and yard work for residents. The first 200 people to sign up as volunteers each receive a free T-shirt.

Another way to contribute to SUDS is through sponsorships. Individuals, businesses and organizations can sponsor the event by donating money or items needed for projects.

SUDS organizers also need to know of any work that needs done on yards and properties in Dawson Springs. To let FRYSC know of any potential work, contact the office at 270-797-4444.

“This event has such a positive impact on the community,” Storms said. “Let’s work together to spruce up Dawson Springs.”
