For the 3rd year, a group of DAWSON Hawaii volunteers rolled up their sleeves for Earth Month and joined soldiers from the 9th MSC, along with family and friends, for the City and County of Honolulu Annual Pearl City Bike Path and Stream Clean-up on Oahu.
DAWSON Fort Shafter Flats employees, Marybeth Racette and Tyler Belko, coordinated the DAWSON volunteer contingent. When Marybeth first proposed the volunteer idea to DAWSON 3 years ago, she thought the clean-up was a natural fit for DAWSON’s commitment to environmental stewardship in the local community.
“As environmental stewards, we felt that we could combine the good intent from the Army Reserve Employee perspective as well as from the DAWSON employee perspective, since the goal of being environmentally conscious is shared between the two groups,” says Marybeth. Waipahu Community Coalition and Weed & Seed Hawaii also partnered to support the event.
