Miami Gardens is hosting a community cleanup and looking for volunteers.

The event is taking place from 8 a.m. to noon. Saturday at Miami Carol City Park, 18500 NW 32nd Ave. and then moving into the community.

The public works department’s Keep Miami Gardens Beautiful division said that gloves and bags and other supplies will be available for volunteers. Food will be provided.

“They only thing they really have to bring is themselves and a baseball cap and sunscreen,” said KMGB coordinator Lashura Batten.

Volunteers will be split into five groups and move along routes through neighborhoods around the park.

Those interested in volunteering should call 786-279-1261.
