What Is a Community Cleanup?
A community cleanup brings volunteers together to clean, repair, and improve public spaces or other areas (such as vacant lots or abandoned properties) that have been neglected, vandalized, or misused. Cleanup projects can involve all kinds of public spaces—parks, riverbanks, schoolyards, sidewalks, playing fields, and even parking lots, to name just a few.
A major Hill-wide Clean Up event is held each Spring in anticipation of the thousands of visitors who observe Good Friday by “walking the steps” at Holy Cross Immaculata Church. This event also takes place in the Fall to prepare for the hibernating season! Plastic bags are given to all who attend so we can comb the streets and by-ways to collect litter and other debris that accumulates.
Watch for flyers posted around the Hill with Spring/Fall Clean Up Day information and as always, be sure to check www.mtadamstoday.com regularly for timely updates and information.
