More than a thousand people participated in the 37th Annual Broward County Waterway Cleanup on March 1. The event was sponsored by the Marine Industry Association of South Florida and gave people in the community an opportunity to help clean the waterways of debris and trash.

"This gives individuals, families, service organizations and schools a chance to help keep the community clean," said Louis Goldstein, who coordinated a group of volunteers in northern Broward County. "People like the opportunity to give back to the community. It makes them feel good and it means that canals and waterways get clean up."

Marcos Gonzalez brought his family out for a day of cleaning. "We found a lot of bags, bottles and fishing line. I was glad to have a chance to help clean the community and make a positive difference today," said Gonzalez.

Kayla Goldfarb also liked having a chance to help out in the community. "I liked working on this project. I like the chance to help keep my city clean," said Goldfarb.
