Recruiting Pedestrian Safety Outreach Volunteers in Wheaton

The SWAG Team and the Protectores del Camino are made up of Wheaton residents who are working to promote pedestrian safety to their communities, such as Connecticut Avenue Estates, Montclair Manor and Rock Creek Palisades.

The group works hard to distribute information – bags and brochures -- at local community-wide events. At the Salvadoran-American and World of Montgomery festivals, the Taste of Wheaton and the Kensington Labor Day parade –they handed out more than 4,000 yellow bags with the message “I’m Walking Here! Be Safe. Be Seen.”.

More volunteers are always welcome. And, help will be needed when the group participates in the County’s Thanksgiving Parade on November 17 in Downtown Silver Spring where they will distribute reflective handouts.

To get more information or to volunteer, contact Joana Conklin at joana.conklin@montgomerycountymd.gov.
