More than 25 kids have the answered the call for help from Keep Odessa Beautiful to become a Planet Trooper to wipe out litter in the community.

The children will be picking up litter from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Woodson Park.

Planet Troopers is a summer program that offers kids, ages 8-12, the opportunity to become a superhero for the City of Odessa and keep the parks clean this summer. Participants will be treated to lunch and receive a KOB goodie bag, complete with a 7-day pool pass valid at Odessa pools through the summer 2016 season.

Planet Troopers is sponsored by Republic Services, City of Odessa Parks and Recreation, and H-E-B.

For more information, please contact Keep Odessa Beautiful at 335-4686.
