SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA, June 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Helping to keep the streets of Seattle litter-free is something the Church of Scientology takes seriously. The Church’s Environmental Task Force and the local chapter of The Way to Happiness Foundation have participated in the Adopt-a-City-Street program for more than three decades, longer than any other organization. They join thousands of volunteers who regularly clean hundreds of miles of city streets as part of this local waste disposal program.

In addition to their volunteer work on World Environment Day, over the past month, Church volunteers have participated in the city’s “Spring Clean” efforts and joined in the “One Seattle Day of Service” by Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell, in which nearly 4,000 volunteers engaged in more than 125 projects across Seattle.

Forestry Steward Dave Scattergood, coordinator of the Scientology Environmental Task Force, led the Seattle Day of Service improvements at Kinnear Park with a total of 30 volunteers weeding, mulching and removing invasive blackberry vines throughout in the morning and in the afternoon. “Invasive species prevent the natural forest from recovering,” Scattergood said, “so it’s vital that they are removed to help maintain our green spaces.”

The task force adopted Kinnear Park, one of Seattle’s oldest parks, 22 years ago. They have contributed thousands of volunteer hours, keeping the beautiful park clean and safe for community use.

The Way to Happiness Seattle Task Force and Chapter uses “The Way to Happiness” booklet to raise awareness of the need to care for the environment and encourage others to participate in the work of keeping Seattle green and sustainable. “The Way to Happiness” is a non-religious common sense moral code written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. One of its precepts is “Protect and enhance your environment”, which states:

“There are many things we can do to help take care of the planet. They start from the idea that one should. They progress by suggesting to others that they should. Man realized the potential for destruction of the planet. He must be pushed up to the ability and actions to save him.

The founder of the Scientology religion is L. Ron Hubbard, and Mr. David Miscavige is the ecclesiastical leader of the religion. The Church of Scientology Seattle is an Ideal Scientology organization established by Mr. Miscavige in July 2010. The Church works closely with other faiths, nonprofits, and leaders on programs to uplift and benefit the community.
