The Westside Community Cleanup started as a grassroots effort in 2009 when a pair of westside residents got together with their neighbors to give the neighborhood some TLC! This event has morphed into a larger effort since, and most recently had over 400 participants!
This year so we can get some normalcy back into our community. To be safe we are spreading the event out a bit and making it more accessible to neighbors. We are focusing our cleanup efforts in multiple neighborhoods in the First Ward, including:
West Leonard @ Richmond Park; Stockbridge @ Lincoln Park; West Fulton @ John Ball Park; Roosevelt Park @ Cesar Chavez Elementary; and Fans of Valley Field @ Sullivan Field
There will be a socially distanced after party at John Ball Zoo!
Each volunteer will meet at their designated district at 8:30 AM for check in and receive a Cleanup Volunteer Welcome Packet the day of the event which will include:
Afterwards, volunteers will be invited to attend a celebration of the cleanup and Party for the Planet (for earth day) at John Ball Zoo with food, music, games and more! Volunteer for the cleanup by registering as a Cleanup Volunteer in one of 5 districts in the 1st ward! Help give our neighborhood some TLC!
Businesses can choose from 3 different sponsorship opportunities on this page or donate raffle items, gift cards, or help by providing an in-kind service.
NOTE: Event is being planned for April 17, 2021 but will depend on Coronavirus restrictions. There will be a secondary event date announced if the first cannot be done safely.
