West Bank Greener and Cleaner-Earth Day Celebrations

submitted by truem@augsburg.edu

West Bank Clean-up: Friday and Saturday, April 21 – 22nd, 10am-12pm

In 2017 we’re focusing on making the West Bank greener *and* cleaner, and what better weekend to celebrate that than Earth Day weekend?! Stop by our table April 21 or 22, from 10am-12pm. In addition to tasty snacks, we’ll have information about garbage and recycling can adoption, neighborhood clean-ups, and graffiti removal. We’ll also be distributing graffiti removal kits and supplies and will have sign-up sheets for hosted clean-ups.

Help us reach our targets! Our goals this year are: 5 more adopted trash cans, 10 *NEW* recycling cans, and 5 extra clean-ups.

Stop by for more information, to sign up, OR to pick up supplies for your earth day cleanup activities!

We’ll be hosting a table out on the Cedar Cultural Center’s Plaza.

Neighborhood Clean-ups: Saturday, April 22

Riverside Park 9:00am-11:30am (2820 S 8th St.)
Bluff Street Park 9:30am-12:00am (1 20th Ave S.)
Currie Park 1:00pm-3:00pm (500 15th Ave S.)

Lots of our neighborhood youth are volunteering for clean-ups, washing windows, and more! Following the clean-up activities, we will be hosting a dinner for volunteers. If you’d like to donate food or funds to help support recognition, please contact Coach Weber – jweber@crcs-school.org.

And happy Earth Day!!!
