Darrin Crawford heard about the 11th annual Baltimore City Shape Up Parks program on the radio. Early yesterday morning, he left his Carroll County home in Woodbine and headed for Herring Run Park in Northeast Baltimore, where he joined more than 100 volunteers picking up trash and other debris.
He ended his day winning a drawing for a trip for four to Yosemite National Park with airfare and hotel accommodations for a week.
A bachelor, the 24-year-old Mr. Crawford said he hopes he can find enough people to go with him.
Robert Schautz, 36, of Glen Burnie, an equipment mechanic at Baltimore's Clifton Park, won the second prize, free maid service for a year.
"This will be a big help for my wife and me since we share the housecleaning duties," Mr. Schautz said.
