Clean-Up Organizers Seek Projects

Posted April 18th, 2013

Clean-Up Organizers Seek Projects
 
On May 18th, Downtown Eau Claire will be the focus of an extensive community service project called "Our City 2013". About 400 volunteers will spend the day cleaning up our downtown river trails, sidewalks, gardens, and city lots, as well as projects that benefit downtown non-profit organizations and businesses.
 
Valleybrook Church and Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. are organizing the clean-up and want to know if there are small projects our volunteers can help with. Last year, our volunteers helped with some projects at places like Western Dairyland, the Eau Claire Children's Theatre, and The Boys and Girls Club of the Greater Chippewa Valley. This year, we're expanding it to not only include downtown non-profit organizations, but we'll also help clean-up the outside of downtown businesses! You just have to provide the specific supplies of the project!
 
There's a form you can fill out and we'll decide if we are able to devote volunteers to it! You can print the form here.
