The recently-formed Keep Virginia-Highland Beautiful group is planning a Business Resident Clean Up Day for this Saturday October 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The group is seeking volunteers to assist with the clean-up effort.
The event is planned as part of a major cleanup of the neighborhood before the kick-off of the holiday season. A collaborative effort between residents and property and business owners, the group will work together to clear weeds, pick up litter, and remove graffiti from around commercial buildings in Virginia-Highland. About 30 teen volunteers from a youth group are already committed to help on Satruday, but the group desperately needs adult volunteers to help coordinate the activities of the young people.
Please visit the group’s Facebook page to sign up to participate. Click on Events, Business/Resident Clean Up Day, and Going. If you can help with coordinating youth volunteers by leading a group of 4-5, please contact Kay Stephenson directly at KeepVirginiaHighlandBeautiful@gmail.com.
Volunteers should meet in the Neighbor’s Pub parking lot at 8:00 a.m. this Saturday October 20. Please bring work gloves, rakes, clippers, and scrapers (for removing stickers from signs). If you own a gas powered weed whacker or leaf blower, this would be a real plus.
Keep Atlanta Beautiful is donating trash bags and latex gloves.
