Columbia Heights Fall Cleanup
October 21 @ 8:30 am
Columbia Heights Lions International and HeightsNEXT, with support from Kiwanis and Key Clubs, are organizing volunteers for a Fall Cleanup along University and Central avenues, Saturday, Oct. 21, 8:30 a.m. Volunteers should meet in the parking lot of Murzyn Hall, 530 Mill St. NE, for a group photo and to be assigned a section of road.
Volunteers will help freshen up local streetscapes and prevent trash from drifting with next spring’s melting snow through storm drains into the Mississippi River. Bags, gloves, safety vests, and trash pickers will be provided.
After volunteers complete their cleanup assignments, they are invited to meet at Huset Park West to clean up trash, return equipment, and enjoy light refreshments until roughly 11:30 a.m. The cleanup will occur rain or shine, so dress for the weather. To volunteer, email HeightsNEXT@gmail.com so organizers know how much equipment to reserve.
