PG&E SEEKS VOLUNTEERS FOR EARTH DAY CLEAN-UP
California’s parks need assistance. You can help by joining the 2010 Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup on Saturday, April 17.
PG&E is a presenting sponsor of the 2010 Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup, in partnership with the California State Parks Foundation. Over the past eight years, our PG&E volunteers–employees, retirees and their families and friends–dedicated more than 18,000 volunteer hours to the parks on Earth Day during that time. PG&E volunteers planted more than 2,500 trees and plants and collected more than one ton of recyclables and 1,000 pounds of trash.
