Volunteer at the Community Clean Up on September 19th

Volunteers are always key to making a huge event like the clean-up a success.  This is a great way for families, friends, or neighbors to volunteer together!   With a variety of jobs (for heavy lifters and people who can’t do heavier work), we’ll find a spot that’s a good fit for you!  We are also in need of a few people with trucks or trailers to help haul re-use items to Goodwill at the end of the clean-up.  Please let us know if you are able to help!  In exchange for volunteering your time for the first (7:30 – 11 am) or second shift (10:30 -2) (or both).   You will receive a $20 voucher for the clean-up and a free lunch.   Please contact Kathy at 651-695-4005 or to sign up!
