BENTON HARBOR — Union Park was flooded with people Tuesday.

There wasn’t a pickup game or a picnic. Instead more than 30 volunteers from KitchenAid and Kinexus’ YouthBuild program were out cleaning and maintaining the Benton Harbor park.

Volunteers began working at 7 a.m., cutting down branches, spreading mulch and updating playground equipment until 3 p.m.

This was part of a larger effort put on by the Whirlpool brand, which had 160 volunteers cleaning and working at 12 locations. Other volunteer sites included the Benton Harbor Senior Center, Southwest Michigan Community Action Agency, Cycle ReCycle and the Morton House Museum.

Kenneth Perry and Ed Pinkowski were the project managers for the Union Park cleanup. This was the first time KitchenAid had been out to clean Union Park, but Pinkowski said it was the seventh year KitchenAid has been picking sites to help clean.
