For the third year, employees picked up litter at a designated area, this time at MacArthur Park located near Paragon’s Coppell location. On April 5, employees wearing volunteer t-shirts meticulously combed the park picking up approximately 17 bags of trash while generating immense satisfaction and sweat.
Clean Coppell is held every year in conjunction with the Great American Cleanup and Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off events. Volunteers are invited to do their part by completing a litter cleanup, creek cleanup or by participating in the Coppell Nature Park’s workday or completing another beautification or improvement project of their choosing.
