Keep San Bernardino Beautiful
Sat, March 25, 2017, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM PDT
This year, Neighborhood Housing Services of the Inland Empire (NHSIE) and the San Bernardino Quality of Life team are partnering together to host San Bernardino’s first Great American Clean Up event. This event will include picking up trash, cutting weeds and other street beautification efforts. The ultimate goal of this event is to not only decrease blight in the area but also to bring credibility to the impact local residents can make when they stand together for a common goal.
The Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program, engaging more than 5 million volunteers and participants every year to create positive change and lasting impact in local communities.
Entering its 19th year in 2017, the Great American Cleanup offers structured service projects – experiential environment education, organized volunteer events and employee engagement opportunities – in more than 20,000 communities across the country. Volunteers’ work returns, on average, $175 million in measurable benefits across participating communities over the past five years. Keep America Beautiful affiliates and participating organizations coordinate events and programs to renew parks, trails and recreation areas; clean shorelines and waterways; remove litter and debris; reduce waste and increase recycling; and plant trees, flowers and community gardens, among more than 40,000 events annually to inspire a new generation of community stewards.
At what time is check-in?
Volunteer check-in begins at 8:30 am at the NHSIE parking lot at the southwest corner of D street and 14th street.
