Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) April 09, 2013 -- Alpha Source, Inc., a Wisconsin-based medical equipment parts distributor and battery-pack manufacturer, will be hosting its fourth annual cleanup of Calumet Road and the area surrounding the Calumet Woods Business Park. The event, known as Project Calumet, will be held in honor of Earth Day on Friday, April 19th, 2013 from 11am-2pm. Project Calumet has become an opportunity for Alpha Source employees and employees from the surrounding companies to come together to keep their neighborhood clean.
“The location of our office and many other businesses are tucked away on Calumet Road, and people sometimes don’t realize there are businesses in the area. Garbage and various scrap items are often dropped off on the streets leading up to our businesses,” Norine Carlson-Weber, president of Alpha Source, explained. “Our employees value their work community so Project Calumet is the perfect opportunity for employees to do whatever they can to have the area cleaned up.”
Last year’s cleanup brought over 40 volunteers including Alpha Source employees, and employees from Visual Impressions and Douglas Dynamics, LLC. Volunteers picked up litter and trash along West Calumet Road, in the wooded areas surrounding the Calumet Woods Business Park, and neighboring side streets. Over 60 bags of litter and trash, along with various large scrap items, were collected.
Volunteers are still needed for the event. Contact Alpha Source at 800-654-9845 ext. 246 for details on volunteering.
