Temperatures are beginning to get warmer, and Spring weather is on it’s way. Meanwhile Clean Memphis is gearing up for one of its busiest months of the year–April. You probably already knew that Earth Day is observed annually on Aprill 22. Earth Day is always a big deal to us at Clean Memphis. That is why we have decided not to just observe it on April 22, but we’re celebrating “Earth Month” for the whole month of April! Cleanups, volunteer events, and other activities will take place all month long right here in Memphis! To stay up to date with events regularly check our Events Page and or Sweeps Page. We will be releasing a detailed calendar in the days to come. So be sure to like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter.
National Make A Difference day is a day many in the U.S. spend in service to others. It is an opportunity to make a real impact in your own community or help another community. In Memphis, Clean Memphis and partners decided to focus on the places where we connect as a community: parks, greenways, bike lanes, blueways. These areas affect the community at large as far as the local water supply and places of recreation. Improving the condition and quality of these places improves the whole community.
Clean Memphis hosted A Cleanup along with Livable Memphis and Volunteer Mid-South and sponsored by Buckman Laboratories and Wright Medical for National Make A Difference Day at the ArkWings Facility. It was held in Frayser. It was a great success thanks to volunteers from Memphis University School, Rhodes College, St jude ALSAC, Memphis Ambassadors Program, Girls Inc., FedEx The Sierra Club, and White Station High School.
A BIG Thanks to all participants who were involved! We collected several bags of litter and almost 200 tires along the Wolf River Bank!
