CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Volunteers from around the community came together on August 27th to pick up trash in the East Gateway neighborhood. But what they left behind was even more significant –The Way to Happiness, a non-religious moral code based on common sense. 10 bags of trash were collected and over 200 booklets were passed out. The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay recently opened their center in Downtown Clearwater, funded by the International Association of Scientologists.

“Safeguard and Improve Your Environment,” is one of the 21 precepts of The Way to Happiness that the volunteers base their actions on and so help their neighbors with the community clean-ups.
“After doing numerous clean-ups in one neighborhood called Greenwood and distributing the booklets there, we decided to add our actions to the next neighborhood, East Gateway,” said Tanja Cranton, the Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay.
“Many of the residents we talked to thanked us for coming out here and cleaning up the neighborhood,” said Tom, one of the volunteers. “I’m just glad to have the opportunity to make a positive impression.”
