Lawrence, MA: Riverwalk Dental, located in the heart of the Merrimack Valley in Lawrence Massachusetts, joins Rocky Morrison, a patient of Riverwalk Dental, in his quest to clean up the Merrimack River. The effort, dubbed the “Clean River Project,” started in 2005 and continues today.
“The effort Rocky and his family have put into this project inspired the team at Riverwalk Dental to get involved” stated Joseph Beninato, partner at Riverwalk Dental. “We believe in giving back to the community and what better way to do that than to help make the Merrimack River a great clean and safe place for everyone.”
The clean River Project presently needs to buy equipment to continue effectively making a difference in cleaning the Merrimack River. Specifically, the team wishes to purchase a conveyor belt boat which quickly, efficiently and safely grabs and removes debris from the water. Over the last thirteen years, hundreds of tires, nearly 100 cars, and countless needles are among some of the major pollutants removed by the Clean River Project over the years. Although such progress has made a huge difference to the area, much more needs to be done.
