The Knights of Rizal – Firenze Chapter has mobilised 35 of its Volunteer Corps with the support of FEA Empoli to take part in the Puliamo Empoli Cleaning Drive organised under the patronage of the city government of Empoli, province of Florence. Over 50 large sacks of garbage were collected from Empoli’s main parks and plazas.
‘Clean Empoli’ closed in the presence of the Municipal Environmental Councilor of the City of Empoli, Adolfo Bellucci, present to convey the greetings and thanks of the municipal administration.
“I can only say thank you on behalf of the municipal administration to those who, this morning and whenever the opportunity arises, take action to lend a hand to the city,” said Councilor Adolfo Bellucci.
“Clean Empoli,’ a project within the ‘Autumn for the Environment’ initiative under the patronage of the city government, is proof that everyone within our community can make a difference by choosing to commit to the land and the environment. Together, the administration, citizens, and residents can do a lot with civic sense and responsibility for the environment and nature conservation. The hope is that environmental awareness will spread more and more, involving adults and children, eradicating phenomena such as littering. The path is not easy and probably not short, but today, with this initiative, the Filipino community has shown to be alongside the Municipality and the city on this journey,” he ended.
