Volunteers needed for Columbia Heights cleanup
October 19 @ 8:30 am
HeightsNEXT is organizing volunteers for a fall cleanup along Central Avenue, Saturday, Oct. 19, at 8:30 am. Volunteers will freshen up local streetscapes and prevent trash from drifting with next spring’s melting snow through storm drains into the Mississippi River.
Interested volunteers should meet in the parking lot of Community United Methodist Church, 950 Gould Ave NE. Bags, safety vests, and trash pickers will be provided. A group photo will be taken and each set of volunteers will be assigned a section of road.
After volunteers complete their cleanup assignments, they are invited back to the church to return equipment and enjoy light refreshments until roughly 11 am. The event is “rain or shine” so participants should dress for the weather. Info and signup: facebook.com/HeightsNext, email@example.com, or show up on the day of the event.
