Jade District/Montavilla Earth Day Cleanup
We will work picking up trash along 82nd Ave. both north and south of Division Street. After your hard work, stay for a fun activity that will give you something green to take home in honor of Earth Day!
After the clean-up, from 12pm to 2pm, we will collect styrofoam from the public to be recycled and you are more than welcome to bring the styrofoam piling up at your house too!
We will also be collecting donations of unused hygiene products and clothes for Saints Peter & Paul (SPP) Church and Rahab's Sisters, both community organizations helping our houseless neighbors. Rahab's Sisters is in much need for oversized women's clothing and SPP will take any size men's clothing, especially outerwear.
Thank you for being part of the community and showing your love! You are beautiful!
