National Make A Difference Day: The Places Where We Connect 2013

Image

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!
