CLEARWATER – Pinellas Safe Harbor clients and other volunteers spent part of Saturday cleaning up the Highpoint area in and effort dubbed “Take a Bite Out Of Grime.”

Pinellas Safe Harbor, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Special Operations Unit and Community Policing deputies coordinated the event that transported dozens of Pinellas Safe Harbor clients and other volunteers to approximately ten locations around the Highpoint area to pick up litter.

Current and former NFL and AFL players, as well as a former Navy Seal participated in a meet and greet with the participants as they begin their day. The clients also had the opportunity to earn community service hours as part of their volunteer work.

Following the cleanup, participants received lunch at Pinellas Safe Harbor, 14840 49th St. N. in Clearwater. The team that collected the most litter received prizes.

Guest speakers and guests included Louis Murphy, from the New York Giants; Corey Knowles, a retired Navy Seal; Derrick Graham, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders; Deputy Stevie Thomas, formerly of the Tampa Bay Storm; Stylez G. White, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; and Glenn Edwards, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A number of community partners supported the cleanup.
